The Student Activities and Budget Advisory Committee (SABAC)

The Student Activities and Budget Advisory Committee (SABAC) serves as an advisory committee to the Vice President of Student Success on allocation of student activity funds, on approval of applications to form new organizations, and on changes to the constitutions or bylaws of existing student organizations. Authority is delegated by the President of Kennesaw State University to the Vice President of Student Success, who acts on the advice of SABAC. SABAC receives budget requests from eligible organizations and holds hearings to consider whether these organizations will be given the amount requested. Hearings are held on Wednesday afternoon during Fall and Spring semesters and are open to the public. You are welcome to attend.

SABAC's membership includes representatives of the administration, staff, faculty and students. To fully represent the total community it is to serve, SABAC is composed of twelve (12) voting members and four (4) non-voting members. Student votes totals eight (8) members, thus exceeding the Board of Regents' policy requirement that such a committee have a membership of at least fifty (50%) students. SABAC is chaired by a student member elected by the committee.

Student members are appointed by the Student Government president. Students may submit an application for consideration. Applications are available here.

Authority for yearly allocations has been delegated by the President of the University to the Vice President for Student Success, who acts on the advice of the Student Activities and Budget Advisory Committee. The committee meets each winter to plan the next fiscal year's budget.

During the year, SABAC considers deviations from the budget that occur as a result of changes in the University's financial situation or as a result of changes in situations affecting organizations or programs funded by student fees.

SABAC solicits budget requests from funded organizations and holds hearings to consider whether each organization should be given the amount requested. Hearings, held Wednesday afternoons during Winter semester, are open to the public. You are welcome to attend.

SABAC is a standing committee of Kennesaw State University. The composition of the committee is 50% students and 50% faculty/staff. Students are elected and appointed. Elections are held during the spring semester.

Meetings are held on Wednesdays, 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Please review the current meeting schedule below for meeting dates and locations.
