Starting this Fall, NAU students will pay a $15 "green fee" each semester, a $10 increase over the current fee. The increase will generate about $600,000 a year.

Green Fund Committe Chair, Kristen Morale, says several projects have already been put in place since the green fee was origiinally established, including a large solar panel array on the San Francisco Parkiing Garage. She says the additional money will be used to reduce NAU's impact on the environoment and to create a culture of sustainability.
