Student Affairs Programming Council - Online Application

The Division of Student Affairs views student organization programs as an integral part of the University’s educational objectives and provides programming grants for student organization activities that are consistent with the University’s educational mission.

Programming, as defined by the Programming Council, is an event, supplemental to the classroom experience, which is initiated and sponsored by a student organization(s); it is educational, cultural and/or contributes to the development of students and the campus community. The Student Affairs Programming Council supports such student sponsored programming by assisting students in completing all necessary steps in proposal development, writing and submission.
