The UGA Campus Sustainability Grants Program provides competitive funding for student-proposed projects and initiatives designed to advance sustainability through education, research, service, and campus operations. Successful projects will address priorities outlined in UGA’s 2020 Strategic Plan to actively conserve resources, educate the campus community, influence positive action for people and the environment, and provide useful research data to inform future campus sustainability efforts. Interdisciplinary projects designed to inspire, beautify and uplift – as well as to inform and conserve – are encouraged. Proposals are accepted from current UGA students and will be selected based on merit, positive impact, implementation feasibility, and available funding.

The Office of Sustainability coordinates, communicates, and advances sustainability initiatives at UGA in the areas of teaching, research, service and outreach, student engagement, and campus operations. For more information visit:

ICE-Vision continues with Film Studies and English major Dafna Kaufman’s selections of great films that may be forgotten by the general public, but can be remembered and cherished through viewings today.

Claire’s Knee is a 1970 film by Eric Rohmer. It is the fifth movie in the series of the Six Moral Tales. Roger Ebert wrote, “In a work by Eric Rohmer, small attitudes and gestures can summon up a university of humanity.” Eric Rohmer’s classic french film deals with “self-deception, …cruelty, …a certain kind of arrogance that goes with wisdom, and very much…sex ” (Vincent Canby, New York Times).”

ICE-Vision: Rumble Fish (Coppola, 1983)

ICE-Vision continues with Film Studies and English major Dafna Kaufman’s selections of great films that may be forgotten by the general public, but can be remembered and cherished through viewings today.

Based on the S.E. Hinton novel, Rumble Fish follows the lives of two brothers, Rusty James (Matt Dillon) and The Motorcycle Boy (Mickey Rourke). Roger Ebert wrote, “Rumble Fish gives you emotions, looks and sounds rather than story; afterwards, you feel like you’ve seen a gang movie, but you’re not sure which one…I thought Rumble Fish was offbeat, daring, and utterly original.” With direction from Francis Ford Coppola and beautiful cinematography by Stephen Burum, Rumble Fish tells a simple tale in an engaging and mysterious fashion.
