SSAF: New recommended funding allocations; $76k for Women’s Space + UNESA activities; details
Via Eve Gavel, Project Manager, Student Services and Amenities Fee Initiative: “The Student Services and Amenities Fee Committee (SSAFC), which manages the way the student amenities fee is used, has recommended funding allocations for new student resources, as well as two popular SSAF-funded activities that were conducted in 2013.
Enhancing student life and amenities is central to the Committee’s funding considerations. SSAFC is comprised of both University and student representatives, comprising the President and members of the UNESA team.
The Committee would be very interested to hear any feedback on these proposals, which are:
- $35,000 to develop the old on campus security space into a women’s space, including lounge style seating and furniture, desk and a small kitchen
- $30,000 to upgrade IT equipment for UNESA teams and services, including IT software and hardware for the Independent Student Advocates and new equipment for Tune FM
- $5,000 to continue Music in the Courtyard
- $6,000 to support on campus activities provided to students by the wonderful Blue Shirts Volunteers!
The proposals conform with Commonwealth guidelines for SSAF expenditure. Students can learn more about SSAF by visiting this UNE website: http://www.une.edu.au/study/fees/student-services-and-amenities-fee/managing-the-fee. Feedback can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
