About SSFC

What is the Student Services Finance Committee?

SSFC is the allocations branch of the student government at UW Madison. The committee allocates approximately $44 million in segregated fees, in consultation with UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank.

The Committee determines annual funding levels and provides oversight for student organizations housed within the General Student Services Fund, as well as WSUM Student Radio. SSFC also approves student-negotiated contracts with Madison Metro, which specify the level and cost of bus service on campus. In conjunction with Student Council, SSFC also determines funding levels for the Green Fund, the Tenant Resource Center, the Rape Crisis Center, as well as total funding available for travel, event, and operations grants to registered student organizations. 

SSFC also holds budget hearings and provides student recommendations for several multi-million dollar operations on campus, including University Health Services, the Division of Recreational Sports, the Wisconsin Union, and the Childcare Tuition Assistance Program. Under UW System Policy F50, the Chancellor has primary authority over these fees. 

The committee has 15 voting members, all UW-Madison students. The decisions made by SSFC are sent to Student Council for confirmation, before going before the UW-Madison Chancellor and finally the UW System Board of Regents for approval. It is students' right and obligation to oversee the distribution of segregated fees, as specified in Wisconsin Statute 36.09(5).

SSFC Calendar for 2014-2015

 

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
