Funding Sources

The Dean of the College division provides multiple sources of funding for personal needs, student-run events, and campus programs.


Each year, the Dean of the College sponsors a limited number of supplemental student and academic programs and events that promote leadership development, community-building, and diversity and inclusion initiatives. This sponsorship ordinarily requires the event, initiative, or program to be offered campuswide and ineligible for other funding options. Submissions may be made by students, staff, or faculty on behalf of an individual or group. 

Please contact the Office of the Dean of the College at for more information. 

Campus Programs

The campus program departments listed below do not ordinarily directly sponsor student-initiated programs. The Budget Allocation Committee (BAC) should serve as the primary source of funding for student activities. Please talk with the department for clarification about opportunities in any of the areas.
