2014 Projects

(13/14 Academic Year)

2014 saw the continuation of two large projects started in 2013: solar docks, and the innovation food forest. These projects are scheduled to be completed in spring or summer. Projects funded this year so far include several research-oriented quick fund projects, and our first-ever community-based project (as opposed to it happening on one of our campuses).
