Budget and Finance Committee

The Budget and Finance Committee oversees $10.75 of student fees, which is set aside for Student Association uses. These funds are divided between the various groups within STIL and are used for various events, clubs and organizations, publicity, and SUUSA Senate initiatives. A large portion of this money goes toward the Student Senate budget, which is mostly used to fulfill Student and Club Funding Requests. The Budget and Finance Committee’s main responsibility is managing these funding requests made by students and clubs. Requests under $200 will be approved or denied by the committee alone, while the committee will make a recommendation for requests over $200 that are taken to the Student Senate to be voted on.
