Last night, the Student Activities Commission approved changes to its funding guidelines that will allow for groups to petition the commission for amendments to its programming arc throughout the semester.
Under the old rules, clubs were bound by the outlines of events that they submitted to SAC before the beginning of each semester. Even events that required no club funds were disallowed if they had not been previously outlined in the programming arc. This rule prompted widespread criticism, including two open letters from SAC groups.
The new funding guidelines (included below) allow groups to submit programming arc modifications during the third meeting of each month. Groups will then be required to outline and justify their programming for the remainder of the semester.
