AS sustainability fund reinstated

Janessa Mostow, assistant sustainability coordinator for the Associated Students Sustainability program.

The Associated Students Sustainability Fund Allocation Committee was reinstated after being suspended in September when former A.S. sustainability coordinator Eli Goodsell resigned.

The Sustainability Fund Allocation Committee will meet Nov. 12 to discuss when students will be able to submit their project proposals for the sustainability fund. It will review each project and decide how much money the student will receive.

“We’re just trying to find a way to expedite our funding process for the convenience of the students,” said Jovan Smith, A.S. vice president of facilities and services.

Because the committee has just been reinstated, the funds will not be available until February, said Janessa Mostow, assistant sustainability coordinator.

After Goodsell resigned, Mostow was put in charge of co-managing the Sustainability Program and Fund with Courtney Silver, biology graduate student and new A.S. commissioner of sustainability affairs.

Mostow and Silver’s responsibilities include running the workshops, handling the budget and sending budget invoices to the student’s project director and adviser.

“We were adamant about getting SFAC reinstated because so many seniors were hoping to have a project to put on their resume,” Mostow said.

Each semester, a $5.75 student activity fee is included in each Chico State student’s tuition. This fee goes toward the sustainability fund which is used to help reduce the cost of student sustainable projects.

There is approximately $60,000 in the fund, Smith said.
