UAF begins new student fee to promote sustainability

From The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Wednesday, February 10, 2010:

A new $20 fee appeared on University of Alaska Fairbanks students’ records in January to promote sustainability on campus.

If students are unsure exactly where money from the Student Sustainability Fee is heading, the people in charge of it also are working out the details.

“The interest of the students is making sure we have sustainability,” said Robert Holden, associate director of Auxiliary and Business Services. “It’s a large and broad topic.”

Holden is the faculty adviser for the student-led project. Last spring, students voted to implement the Student Initiative for Renewable Energy Now fee as a way to boost green practices at UAF.
