Welcome to the Charlotte Green Initiative website!

The Charlotte Green Initiative (CGI) is a student-led initiative that collects a $1 per semester Green Fee from each full-time UNC Charlotte student.  These funds are allocated to projects that will enable UNC Charlotte to grow and operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.

To find out what we're currently working on visit the projects page. 

CGI was established in 2008 and aims to create campus-wide awareness, education, and consciousness of environmental sustainability among students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Do you have an idea to make campus more sustainable?  We want to hear it, and the best part is, CGI could provide the funding!

To download a small grant proposal for funding under $500, click here, for all others, click here!  You are free to submit proposals throughout the Summer! Once submitted, the proposals will go through a formal review process by the members of CGI and either approved or rejected. This process can take up to two weeks to complete.
