An advisory board made up of students, faculty, and staff reviews all proposals to ensure effective use of the funds generated by each of the fees.

The Technology Fee Advisory Board includes representatives from SGA, the Graduate Student Association, Academic Affairs, Student Life, the Council of Academic Deans, faculty, Finance and Administration, and the Office of Information and Technology. A five-student subcommittee serves in an advisory capacity to analyze student needs and recommend plans and expenditures to the larger committee.

Interested in serving on the Facilities or Student Programs and Services Fee Advisory boards or the Technology Fee Committee? Contact SGA about future opportunities.
