Spring 2018 Semester Meetings:

B&F will meet every Wednesday from 1:30 - 2:30pm

This committee focuses on properly allocating funding to student organizations and campus departments in co-sponsoring their events/programs to educate and provide social and learning programs outside of the classroom.  B&F was established to appropriately allocate student fees to RISOs and campus divisions in a fair and organized process.
