The Office of Sustainability is pleased to announce the 2019-20 Green Fund grants. A committee of three faculty-staff and six students reviewed 28 projects, ultimately funding 17 for a total amount just over $300,000.
The Green Labs Program at The University of Texas at Austin is getting a boost: a full-time professional coordinator. UT Austin is currently accepting applications for a Green Labs Coordinator, a position created in part thanks to a generous donation by BASF Corporation.
Green Fund—and the over 160 projects that have made UT Austin more sustainable since 2011—owes a huge debt of gratitude to Jacob Bintliff, B.A. '10, who spent much of his undergraduate years working to realize his green vision for campus.
The Half-Pint Urban Prairie Projectbroke ground on a new Blackland priarie near the Student Services Building on campus. The project is funded by Green Fund and and is in coordination with Landscape Services.
