First off, I want to welcome you to the new Student LEAF website! We’re so happy to have you!
The Student Leadership for Environmental Action Fund, commonly known as Student LEAF, is the University of Northern Colorado’s green fund. A green fund is a pool of money available to finance environmental projects that promote sustainability on a college campus.
As a student-funded foundation, our top priority is your environmental needs. Every UNC student has the ability to submit a project proposal. If you have any ideas about how to make UNC a more sustainable eco-friendly environment, we want to hear it! I always say, the best ideas, are green ideas! So don’t hesitate to share!
I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m probably the laziest person you’ll know. But luckily, being green doesn’t have to be hard. If it were, I certainly wouldn’t be doing it, would I? Here, at Student LEAF, we want to make eco-lifestyles easy and accessible to the UNC student body. This website will seek not only to inform you of Student LEAF’s ongoing activities on campus, but also to provide you with some valuable and practical information about how to go green, and what sustainability looks like on a college campus.
UNC is not just a place where we (sometimes) go to class. We eat here, we sleep here, we breath here. In short, we live here—together—sharing one happy campus community.
I love this cow town, and I have a feeling you do to! So let’s take care of what we’ve been given, one green step at a time.
