Finance Board

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 Policies & Procedures. We would like to help all organizations become comfortable with our proposal process so feel free to contact us at fb@iit.edu with any comments, questions or concerns. You can also reach out to your respective Finance Board Advisor via email.

Meet the Board

Anwesha Roy

Hi, my name is Anwesha Roy and I am a Finance Major. I have been part of the Finance Board since Fall 2018. I wanted to be the Finance Board Chair because there have been many issues with the uncertainty about the hearing dates and also about the policy followed by the Finance Board. I want to get those issues resolved as soon as possible and bring uniformity to the Finance Board. I would also like to assure all students that there will be no bias against any organization and there will also be consistency in the policies.
