The CEF was established to advance renewable energy infrastructure on campus, and foster clean energy research and academics.
The priority for the CEF is to support renewable energy development by investing in projects that displace fossil fuel energy use by the campus. Preparing for and making the necessary changes to campus to transition away from fossil fuels engage the three aspects of sustainability: social, ecological, and economic.
The CEF is managed by the Vice President of Finance and the Office of the University Controller. The fund is administered through the Socially Responsible Investing Advisory Council.
