The Student Activity Fund Allocation Committee (SAFAC) is responsible for managing and allocating the Student Activity Fund of Ferris State University. The fund is collected through the Student Activity Fee charged to students each semester. The Student Activity Fund allows Registered Student Organizations to request funding for events or travel.
SAFAC firmly believe that supporting extracurricular involvement leads to academic success, giving students the opportunity to learn additional skills and tools through programming and/or travel.
Requirements of Funding Request
The members of SAFAC are asked by the Director of Finance to determine the following facts when funds are requested:
- First, members must determine the feasibility of the event or travel requested. Does the event or travel coincide with Ferris' Core Values? Is the event or travel requested in the appropriate time frame?
- Second, members must be fiscally conservative and analyze the cost vs. benefit of the funds requested. Will the event or travel make a large impact to students? Will the amount requested only impact a few? Will the skills learned come back to campus and be spread from the RSO? These are all factors and questions asked by the division commonly each year.
- Lastly, members are asked to think objectively and understand they are representing the whole student body.
