Finance Committee

The Senate Finance Committee is traditionally responsible for managing the Professional Development Assistance Program which provides CU Anschutz students reimbursement for certain education related expenses such as: registration fees and travel to networking events, conferences, and student organization meetings.

Other roles of the committee: keep account of the Student Senate budget and inform Senate regarding the availability of funds for expenditure; provide campus-wide programming on finance related subjects, monitor senator attendance; verification of class eligibility for student activity fund disbursement. The Finance Committee (one senator representing each college/program/school at CU Anschutz) also sits on the Academic Student Advisory Committee, as well as the CU Anschutz Student Fee Review Committee.

All finance forms can be found on the forms page. 

A portion of the Student Senate budget is appropriated for providing financial assistance to student organizations during events. Events attended must have taken place within the United States (no international events will be reimbursed). Each application will be reviewed and decided upon on an individual basis by the Student Senate Finance Committee. Senate will attempt to award funds on an equal and fair basis. There is no guarantee on the award or amount provided.

 

The Student Senate is reorienting the allocation of activity fees to fund University experiences. Because of this, projects like the Professional Development Assistance awards that historically reimbursed students for conference registration fees are no longer available. Funds will now be primarily disbursed to support educational events occurring at our University. Funding requests for activities that are open to the whole student body will have priority over those that benefit specific programs or individuals.
