The Student Sustainability Committee or SSC is a group of undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to building a more sustainable Illinois campus. With the partnership of a team of staff and faculty members, SSC allocates $1.47 million annually toward the development and seed-funding of projects that have an environmental impact on the university community. By pooling together the collection of two student initiated fees, the Cleaner Energy Technologies Fee and the Sustainable Campus Environment Fee, SSC has the privilege of stewarding one of the largest green funds in American higher education today. Through providing consultation and awarding funding, SSC empowers Illinois students, staff, and faculty to be changemakers in sustainability.

Since 2008, SSC has allocated $15.55 million toward funding 316 projects that have made an impact in sustainability!
