Students’ Association Appropriations Committee

Plan for your organization's future. SAAC is responsible for managing the finances of the Students’ Association in a way that is both fiscally responsible and in the best interest of the University of Rochester student body. The Students’ Association (SA) budget is funded entirely by the AS&E Undergraduate Student Activity Fee contributed by each student, as part of their tuition. For this reason, it is our top priority to allocate funds in a manner that will cultivate positive student experiences.
