Tools for Beloit Change Agents

Beloit College has the following tools to equip our students to be sustainability change agents on campus and in the community.

 

The Beloit College Revolving Loan Fund (BCRLF), also called the Sustainability Project Fund, provides initial capital for environmentally friendly projects.

 

The Sustainability Fellows Program gives students the opportunity to contribute their expertise to a sustainability project on campus or in the Beloit community.

Beloit College President Scott Bierman on Sustainability:

 

"I strongly support the current and future sustainable activities on campus.  I believe that there are both economic and educational reasons for enhancing efforts to identify sustainability projects.  Of particular interest are projects that meet reasonable cost-benefit tests; curricular opportunities that introduce environmental issues into courses in a variety of disciplines; and research projects that expand our understanding of the complex interplay between environmental systems and environmental policy."
