Office of Finance
At its core, the purpose of the Student Government Finance Commission is to safeguard the Student Activity Fee. We prepare, administer, and supervise the distribution of the Fee; we audit those recipients of it; and we make recommendations to the Student Senate as to how they might go about allocating it in a manner consistent with the Fee’s mission of serving students in a responsible manner.
We have various methods of ensuring that the Student Activity Fee is allocated responsibly, including our annual budgeting process for student organizations, our contingency fund to ensure coverage of unforeseen expenses, our special project fund to cover unique events that can benefit the NDSU community as a whole, the temporary fund to ensure funding for temporary organizations, and the reserve fund to cover large-scale projects that will have a lasting impact on this University.
Each year, an Executive Commissioner and an Assistant Executive Commissioner are appointed to lead the Finance Commission in their goals, and represent the Commission at the Student Senate and to the students of the University as a whole. We are proud to be those Executives this year, and welcome you to stop by or send us an email at any time for any reason. Go Bison!
Tuesdays at 5pm in the Student Government Office
