The Student Activity Fee Allocation Committee (SAFAC) will begin accepting on-line petitions for unused/unallocated SAF funds (see policy below) starting Monday, June 2, 2014.  The deadline for on-line funding requests will be 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 13, 2014.  SAF supervisors and Student Affairs department leaders are highly encouraged to engage staff and students in discussions on petition submission ideas.  Projects can be completed anytime during the 2014-2015 academic year.

Successful petitions will demonstrate how the project will provide direct benefits to students including, but not limited to programs, services, events and activities.  These projects must enrich the student experience, build community, and encourage students to live out the Jesuit mission to lead and to serve.  Petitions must also submit a detailed project budget.  SAFAC will review all petitions and make approval recommendations to Dr. Mark McCarthy, Vice President for Student Affairs.  Dr. McCarthy will review the recommendations by SAFAC and will make the final decision on all petitions.  We anticipate sending out petition results before the end of June. Please contact Mary Ann Hanicak at mhanicak@jcu.edu if you have any questions regarding this process.

POLICY ON UNUSED AND UNALLOCATED SAF FUNDS
Unused and unallocated funds, if available, will be pooled into the general organization code for the SAF at the end of each fiscal year.  SAF allocation supervisors and Student Affairs departments may petition the SAFAC to receive these funds.  These funds are to be used for large-scale projects that will provide benefits directly to students including, but not limited to programs, services, events and activities.  These projects must enrich the student experience, build community, and encourage students to live out the Jesuit mission to lead and to serve.  The projects awarded these funds must be completed in the 2013-2014 academic year.  The petitioning process for these funds is done on-line according to these guidelines:

At the end of each fiscal year, if unused and unallocated funds are available, notification will be sent to SAF allocation supervisors and student affairs departments regarding the petitioning process.

  1. Petitions are to be completed and submitted on-line to the SAFAC.  The SAFAC is responsible for reviewing and recommending which petitions are to be funded to the Vice President for Student Affairs.  The Vice President for Student Affairs makes the final decision on all petition requests.  Notification is sent to the petitioning allocation supervisor and/or Student Affairs department.
  2. The petitioning process may continue until available funds have been allocated.
