General Fee Advisory Committee

General Fee Advisory Committee Charge

The General Fee Advisory Committee (GFAC) shall make recommendations to the Dean of Students & Vice Provost for Student Affairs on the allocation of the General Fee and on any increase or decrease of the General Fee.

The GFAC will be empowered to act throughout the year and will be particularly active in times of budget preparation. If, in the committee meeting, consensus is not reached on General Fee budget recommendations, the members representing the minority opinion may also submit written recommendations.

The GFAC must be concerned not only about the free exchange of information between students and the administration on the use of General Fees but also with need in the long run to maintain quality in all programs now funded from General Fee income. These programmatic needs require continuity of funding for extended periods of time, especially when related to advance scheduling and staffing by full-time personnel.
