We invite you to apply to be a member of the Student Activities Funding Committee (SAFC) for the 2017-2018 academic year. We are looking for bright, outspoken, and committed individuals.
The Committee is charged with the responsibility of making recommendations concerning the allocation of funds from student fees for special events, lectures, and performances to enrich the cultural environment of the university and enhance campus life. This committee is comprised of students and staff who review student organization proposals and determine funding allocations. The members provide a vital perspective in the funding decision of each program proposal and gain awareness of campus activities.
Being part of the committee is a great way to represent the interests of students and be a voice for what their student fees fund in addition to meeting new people and learning about the funding process for student activities. This is an empowering experience where members of the committee get to make decisions that support student activities, events, and programming that benefit the UIC community.
Benefits of being an SAFC Member:
• Inside track to upcoming campus events
• Occasion to work closely with staff and faculty from diverse academic areas
• Ability to discern how a portion of your student fee money is spent
• Opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience
The committee meets once a month based upon members’ availability.
