Sustainability Solutions for Wofford

We are excited to announce a new initiative — Sustainability Solutions for Wofford — designed to get the great minds at our college thinking about solutions to current challenges on campus. What makes this institution strong is the confluence of many ideas, people and passions. This year in partnership with The Space in the Mungo Center, I invite ideas from students, faculty, staff and alumni related to opportunities for improvement in the area of sustainability. Two opportunities for improvement will be selected, and each person or team will receive $1,000 to implement their solution. Below are the details.

Solutions should:

  • Provide the Wofford community with an idea for solving to an issue regarding sustainability.
  • Have a potential long-lasting impact on Wofford.

To apply:

  • Submit a letter outlining the opportunity for improvement and your proposed solution.
  • Include a project timeline. Solutions should be implemented in a short time frame, and all work should be completed within 12 months of receiving the prize money.
  • Letters of application should be delivered to The Space in the Mungo Center by Monday, April 10, 2017.

Awards process:

  • Winning solutions will be announced at the Terrier StartUP Challenge on Thursday, April 20, 2017.
  • Winning solutions will receive funding by Monday, May 1, 2017. 


The staff of The Space in the Mungo Center is available to assist in the development of ideas and proposals. If you have questions, contact Hannah Wofford in The Space at 864-597-4794 or
