6.2 Committees

Publicity Committee

The Publicity Committee serves all students of UAB by publicizing USGA events. The mission of the Publicity Committee is to effectively and efficiently promote events so students can plan for and attend events funded by their student service fees. The publicity committee works with all other standing committees within the USGA as well as administrators to report events to students. Look for flyers on campus, in the Kaleidoscope, Facebook, Twitter, or check the website for USGA events.

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee primarily handles the external financial affairs of the student government. The Finance Committee is responsible for allocating a portion of the student service fees to various student organizations on campus. Representatives from student organizations that meet the constitutional criteria come to a Budget Hearing held every semester. At the Budget Hearing, the representative is asked about the organization that he/she represents and about the events that funds are being requested for. The committee then creates a Budget Bill for the following semester based on requests from the Budget Hearing. Once the USGA Senate and the administration approve the Budget Bill, organizations are funded for their events on a reimbursement basis.

Student Services Committee

The Student Services Committee builds school unity for students by hosting student interactive activities. The job of the Student Services Committee is to host fun-filled events that allow students to meet and greet other students. Some of the programs of the committee include Wing Fling, Halloween on the Green, and the Midnight Breakfast during finals. This year, the goal of the Student Services Committee is to increase student participation on the committee and at the events. By participating with the Student Services Committee, students develop leadership skills that they can use in the workforce, with other organizations, and after graduation.
