S.A. Approves Revisions to SAFC Application Process

Print More

Last night, the Student Assembly voted to pass the revisions to the Student Assembly Finance Committee’s rules and regulations handbook.
The handbook offers guidelines and provides deadlines to which student organization presidents and treasurers must adhere throughout the application process for funding from the SAFC. The revised handbook has been organized into 12 chapters to better clarify the original rules and newer amendments that have been made to policies in the past.
The SAFC has also worked to rewrite confusing jargon and get rid of poorly defined terms, such as “discrimination” by the SAFC, and has replaced them with more precise labels.
Jack Castle ’08, co-chair of the SAFC who presented the revisions to the S.A., hopes that the new guidelines will facilitate the application process for student applicants, better educate student group leaders, their members and advisors and make the process more transparent to applicants.
The newly selected SAFC commissioners, selected from a pool of 60 applicants, were also approved by the S.A.
