The voting committee is compromised of two parts: the student section and the non-students section. The student section of the voting committee has six students in it including the committee chair. Ideally, the six students are representatives of the six colleges on NAU's campus. They must uphold good academic standing in order to apply for the committee.
The non-student section of the voting committee is comprised of three people: one faculty member, one facilities representative, and one administrative representative. The non-student section of the voting committee gives a perspective otherwise not considered. The non-student section can help the student section understand NAU policy when regarding marketing, Human resources, hiring, procurement and how they affect the work of the Green Fund.

Green Fund History
In March, 2010, NAU students overwhelmingly voted to establish the University's Green Fund: a $5.00 per student fee that goes towards making our campus more sustainable. Funded projects would aim to decrease the University's carbon footprint and contribute to the University's culture of sustainability.
