Committee Chair: Becky Men, Director of Finance


The Finance Committee’s job is to serve as the first vetting force for any student or student organization looking to request funds from SGA.  As a committee, we hold hearings to allow students to explain their events and present their supporting quotes so that the numbers given to us on the excel sheet, match what’s being requested. We enforce our governing document, the financial resolutions, and senators vote on how the Student Activity fund is allocated. As a closed committee, we have a cap of 6 senators. The Finance Committee meets Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
