Sustainable Energy Initiative



The WCU Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI) is a committee of students, faculty and staff advisers responsible for allocating money towards the implementation of renewable energy projects, energy efficiency improvements, research, and internships on campus.  The committee's annual operating budget comes from a self-imposed student fee of $5 per student per semester. Every SEI Project Proposal must clearly demonstrate these two goals:

  • Project relation to sustainability
  • Educational value to student(s)

Are you a student that is interested in being on the WCU-SEI committee? This is great opportunity to shape the future of WCU and make an impact in your community!
