Each year, Senate appoints student members to several university-wide committees and working groups. Applications are made available each spring for terms that take place the following academic year. Students appointed as university-wide representatives provide occasional reports at Senate General Assembly meetings to keep the assembly up to date concerning discussions taking place within committees. For a list of Senate appointments and the students currently holding those positions, click here.
Each year, the Senate Financial Directors Committee distributes $10,000 to registered student organizations. These organizations are also eligible to apply for printing allocations on Senate’s copier. Any organization registered with the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development (SALD) is eligible to apply.
Appropriations applications will be released before the start of the new semester and will be accepted in two phases, defined as a two week period during which the application is received. For more information on Senate’s appropriations process, visit http://utsenate.org/appropriations/.
