Student Sustainability Council

Student-funded capital improvement projects thanks to student support

The Student Sustainability Council (SSC) administers the Student Sustainability Fund, which provides funds to capital improvement projects on campus. This student-driven and student-run fund was created to facilitate positive, sustainable change on IU Bloomington’s campus. Past projects include: an energy-saving light system in Ballantine Hall, a rain garden in the SRSC, and a high tunnel at the campus farm.

SSC also leads the “Check the Box” campaign, which allows students to donate to the fund during course registration. Additionally, SSC seeks to serve as a network for all student organizations with an interest in sustainability—ranging from social and economic justice to the natural environment.

Donating is easy, and for a $5 donation, billed to your bursar you can help leave a lasting legacy on campus. Simply go to One.iu.edu --> Student Center --> Enrollment --> Shopping Cart/ Sign-up for Classes --> select the Sustainablity Fund
