Funding

These officers are elected by the sport club members at the end of each semester. The term of office is one year, and the officers can serve no more than two consecutive terms in any one office.

How does the Sport Club Executive Council receive funding?

The Sport Club Executive Council is the primary source of funding for all sport clubs. A budget is set every spring based on projected income and expenses for the upcoming fiscal year. This budget is then divided among the clubs based on their membership size and estimated expenses. Each club must submit a detailed budget request form outlining their expected expenses for the upcoming fiscal year. The Sport Club Executive Council will review and approve this request at their discretion.

How is funding distributed to sport clubs?

The majority of the annual operating budget for Sport Clubs is generated through the Student Activity Fee. This fee, which is included in tuition and mandatory for all enrolled students, is collected by the university and then allocated to various areas on campus including Sport Clubs. In addition to the Student Activity Fee, Sport Clubs may also generate income through membership dues, fundraising activities, participation fees, endowment earnings and other miscellaneous sources.

Operating budgets for each sport club are determined annually by the Sport Club Executive Council (SCEC). The SCEC consists of a nine-member board that includes the President, Vice President, Treasurer and six student-at-large representatives. The SCEC reviews funding requests from each club and makes recommendations to the Office of Campus Recreation. The final budget approval rests with Campus Recreation administration.
