What is SABAC?

The Student Activities Budget Advisory Committee (SABAC) is an advisory committee made up of students and staff that oversee the distribution, or allocation, of the student activity fee, which is collected from most KSU students.  The student activity fee provides financial support for the Kennesaw and Marietta campuses to enrich the co-curricular student experience and provide essential student services, leadership development opportunities, and student wages for student leader positions. SABAC reviews requests from qualified Registered Student Organizations (RSO) and Student Affairs departments with a direct student impact through programming, events, and activities and makes recommendations to the Vice President for Student.

SABAC meets monthly throughout the fall and spring semesters to review event, promotional and travel requests as well as in April to review annual budget requests. More detailed info including the meetings schedule can be found on the SABAC website. The SABAC Protocol Manual outlines the purpose, membership, operating procedures, and allocation process.
