6. Budgeting and Fiscal Management

Graduates should possess an understanding of and appreciation for the dynamics involved in utilizing financial resources in the implementation of student affairs programs and services. Specifically, students should be able to

a. develop and defend a budget to support a student affairs program;
b. perform all of the functions necessary to access and manage those resources which have been dedicated to a student affairs program.

Evidence One
Student Government Budget

In my role as the Coordinator of Student Life, I oversee the student government budget of $50,000.00. Student government does not receive any funding from the district. Their income is from the bookstore, vending machines, selling ID cards and fundraising. Through out the school year, I work closely with the elected student chief financial officer. Together we itemize, balance and transfer funds. I let her processing payments and present budget reports. Click here to review the current budget: Student Government Budget

Evidence Two
Student Activities Budget and Unit Goals

Along with the student government budget, I oversee the student activities budget of $1500. The student activities budget is funded through district funds and is required to have unit goals. Click here to review my unit goals for 2008-2009 school year: Student Activities Budget and Unit Goals

Evidence Three
Proposal for Student Ambassador Program at NVC

During the CSA 553 Administration in College Student Affairs course, I was asked to develop a leadership portfolio. One part of the portfolio was to demonstrate competence in developing and funding a budget proposal and job description. For the assignment, I created the budget proposal and job description for 5 Student Ambassador positions. I am excited to share that I was able to present my course assignment to the Outreach Committee. Thanks to my efforts, the committee has considered to funding 2 out of 5 positions immediately.
