Who are we?
Who are we?
Our duty as a board is to allocate the student activity fund (SAF) to all the student organizations on our campus in a fair manner. However, our ultimate goal is to promote student involvement and campus life at Illinois Tech. Finance Board (FB) is also responsible for making sure that student organizations are using the money allocated to them in a manner that does not go against the SGA constitution and bylaws as well as the FB Guidelines. We would like to help all organizations become comfortable with our proposal process so feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any comments, questions or concerns. You can also reach out to your respective Finance Board advisor via email.
What is the Student Activities Fund (SAF)?
The Student Activities Fund (SAF) is a fund that is paid into by all students at the university. The Fund is for sponsoring student activities on and off campus. The charge of this account has been given to the Finance Board (FB) which handles the distribution, but dispensation is done by the Office of Campus Life.
Who is on FB?
Who is on the Finance Board (FB)?
FB consists of 9 regular voting members and a chair. The Chair is selected through elections by the general student body during the SGA Executive Board Elections. The rest of the board is nominated by the general student population (mostly student organizations) and confirmed by the SGA Senate through a slate put forth by the FB Selection Commission. If you are interested in joining Finance Board please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
