Deepaak Rajagopol in Daily Bruin: Inside the green campus fee that collects hundreds of thousands more than it spends

“I am not saying music festivals and fashion events should not be funded, but those would not be the first things that come to mind for the Green Fund,” said Deepak Rajagopal, a professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, in an emailed statement.

Rajagopal said TGIF needs to have greater oversight over funded projects and should provide more public transparency related to the criteria used to allocate funding. TGIF released its first-ever midpoint report via social media Tuesday, a day after Alexander was notified of the upcoming publication of The Bruin’s investigation.
