The Ethnic & Gender Centers develop annual budget plans to ensure that the use of HESSR funds are true to student expectations. The Referendum Student Advisory Committee (RSAC) reviews the funding proposals and votes on their allocation recommendations. Then, the Chancellor (or Chancellor’s designate) reviews the RSAC’s allocation recommendations for the HESSR fund.
The Ethnic & Gender Programs submit an annual report summarizing how HESSR funds are used. RSAC reviews and votes on any changes to the original budget plan and any proposed use of carry-forward funds. This information is also reflected in the Annual Report.
