ESPC Student Projects
Each student pays a Green Fee of $10 per semester to the ECOllective Fund that supports projects and initiatives that contribute to sustainability at the College of Charleston. A portion of the ECOllective Fund is set aside specifically to fund student-proposed projects that educate the campus community, encourage positive action for society and the environment, provide research data, and promote collaboration of various academic disciplines. This funding is administered by the ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC), which is composed entirely by members of the student body.
To take advantage of this funding, students have the opportunity to work collaboratively with ESPC to complete the application process and make their sustainability project a reality here on campus. If you are a CofC student with an idea for a student-led project or event that will make our campus more sustainable, then this is the place for you.
How to Begin
There are four different applications managed by ESPC: full scale project applications, expedited project applications, food requests, and speaker requests. More information on each of these applications may can be found on our Applications page, here.
