How to Request Funds

The Saluqi Activity Council (SAC) will review all funding requests

Saluqi Activity Council (SAC)

The Saluqi Activity Council (SAC) will be comprised of two (2) Student Development advisors and 1 member from each club and/or organization (club). Each club advisor will select their representative for SAC. SAC’s job is to evaluate the funding request, check for good standing, and make a decision of yes or no regarding funding requests. A quorum will not be required. A vote of approval for a club’s request will consist of a 50% plus 1 vote of those SAC members who are present. SAC will meet 2 times a year; the third Friday in September, and February from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The location will rotate between the Macon Cove and Union Avenue campuses. Clubs must reserve an appointment during this time to present their proposal to SAC. Appointments will be available in increments of 30 minutes, however, clubs will only have 15 minutes to present. Clubs will be notified of a decision within 48 business hours.
