Student Activity Funding
Student co-curricular activities are an important aspect of the college educational process. The experiential learning associated with activities outside of the classroom assist with deeper learning and critical thinking skill development (Chickering, A.W. & Kuh, G.D., 2005). Studies show that campus engagement leads to educational enrichment leading to improved GPA and meeting timely educational goals (Kuh, G.D. & Kinzie, J., 2005). Further, when students know that they matter to an institution which is often demonstrated through co-curricular engagement, they are more likely to complete their educational experience (Manning, K. & Kuh, G.D., 2005).
The Student Activity Fee (SAF) is used to support co-curricular activities held on and off any of the four campuses that are led by campus clubs and organizations, entities and courses.
The group or activity must be recognized by the College as providing the campus with those cultural, educational, social, and community engagement programs essential to a well-rounded student life, notwithstanding TBR policy.
An online funding application must be completed to request funds. The forms are compiled by the Dean of Students office and reviewed with the Student Activity Fees Committee. All funding requests for the upcoming fiscal year will be submitted in early April. As funds allow, entities can apply for funding during the academic year on a first-come, first-serve basis by consulting the Dean of Students. The Student Activity Fee Committee will meet to review the submissions and make determinations for fund distribution before the end of the spring semester.
This form is to be used to request Student Activity Fee (SAF) funding. Any club, organization, or course for the purpose of co-curricular activities can request funding. Requests need to be completed by either a club officer or faculty connected to course syllabi. Requesters must review SAF guidelines, found at Policy 3:00:00:05.
For questions, please contact Debra Smith, Dean of Students at [email protected] or the Dean of Students office at 931-393-1690.
All activities must comply with all Motlow policies including the Drug/Alcohol Free policy.
