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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 SAF is a fund each students pays into alongside tuition (usually $125/semester/student). Finance Board along with the Office of Campus Life (OCL) carries out this process from reviewing your request to purchasing your requested products or services.
Finance Board is tasked with reviewing and determining if budget requests are in-line with the "spirit" of the SAF being equitable in opportunity and benefit for all students.
Once your budget is approved, you work with the Office of Campus Life by submitting a Purchase Request (PR) on HawkLink detailing very specifically what you which to purchase. OCL additionally works with you with any requests such as finalizing contracts, movie rights, traveling to conferences, etc.
Who is on Finance Board?
Finance Board consists of voting members and a chair. The Chair is selected through elections by the Student Body during the SGA Executive Board Elections. The rest of the board is nominated and confirmed by the SGA Senate through a slate put forth by Finance Board. If you are interested in joining Finance Board please email us at email@example.com.
