About SSFC

What is the Student Services Finance Committee?

The SSFC is a committee made up of UW Students whose task is to make recommendations to ASM Student Council on the allocation of over $32 million in segregated fees. SSFC provides substantial (typically $20,000 and upward) operations funding to student and non-student-run organizations that provide a non-academic but educational service (e.g., tutoring, legal services, multicultural education groups, etc.) to a significant portion of the UW-Madison student body. Money from segregated fees goes to both student organizations, and UW Departments that run non-academic student programming, including University Health Services and Recreation Sports. The money that goes to support student groups is a part of the General Student Services Fund (GSSF), and the student organizations that receive their budget from this fund are often called GSSF Groups.

The SSFC, composed of 15 voting student members, has the authority to recommend raising, freezing, or lowering the funding of existing GSSF organizations and to recommend accepting or denying new funding requests. Those recommendations go before ASM Council, then the UW-Madison Chancellor and finally the UW-System Board of Regents for approval. The decisions made by the SSFC directly determine how much each student will pay in segregated fees each year. It is UW Students' right and obligation to have oversight on the distribution of segregated fees, as specified in Wisconsin statute 36.09(5).

SSFC Calendar for 2013-2014

 

Why should I join?

SSFC is geared toward students interested in developing critical thinking skills, learning how to better articulate arguments through discussion and debate and provides a greater understanding about the university, funding structures and budgets.

Communication skills and the ability to articulate decisions and opinions will be a valuable resource in a 21st century knowledge economy. SSFC supplies an experiential medium in which these skills are practiced and honed.

Additionally, reading and interpreting budgets is a fundamental skill for almost anyone to have (not just bankers and business owners). Most supervisor or managerial jobs at any level and in any field involve some form of budget administration; thus, possessing fundamental budgetary knowledge is an essential skill to possess.

SSFC serves student interests and Wisconsin Idea (education beyond the classroom). This is not a purely informal club; rather, SSFC exists to serve students at UW-Madison and develop transferable skill sets that can be brought with you to you future employment opportunities
