Committees

Joint Finance Committee
Committee Chair: Josh Eastwood

SGA’s Joint Finance Committee is a financial allocation body, chaired by the Joint Vice President of Finance, that is responsible for giving recommendations to the Undergraduate House of Representatives and the Graduate Student Senate. Other major responsibilities include but are not limited to, the preparation of a budget for over 400 student organizations, reviewing of bills, developing close relationships with student organizations, and ensuring the fair usage of allocated funds from the Student Activity Fee.

The Joint Finance Committee is often the main point of contact between SGA and student organizations. It is also responsible for ~$2 million of fellow students’ money. This places tremendous responsibility on us. Our main goal is to foster the growth of diverse interests and communities on campus. JFC is a tightly knit team of students who are all committed to progress and service. Therefore, attendance to JFC meetings on Thursdays 6-8pm is mandatory.

JFC is typically comprised of 10 members. The Vice President of Finance, 3 Undergraduate Representatives (includes the Undergraduate Treasurer), 3 Graduate Senators (includes the Graduate Treasurer), and 3 JFC Committee Members (need not be in SGA).

Duties of the committee include meeting with representatives from student organizations to help them with receiving financial allocations, hosting budget sessions, drafting policy proposals, contributing to joint efforts between Communications, Information Technology, and any other branch in SGA.
