CFA Meeting

Committee for Fee Allocations

The Committee for Fee Allocations (CFA) oversees the yearly allocation of Student Fees in both Fund A and Fund B users. During the first semester the committee meets with each fee user to get acclimated with the users' services. The second semester consists of budget requests and approvals pending the ASUN Senate, Vice Chancellor, and Chancellor's vote.

If at any time a student wishes to drop Fund A from their student fees, he or she will be removed from all discounted services provided by that user. Students may only drop Fund A from their student fees, Fund B cannot be refunded.

University Program and Facilities Fees

The Purpose of Student Fees

Imagine, for a moment, a quite different UNL. Erase from the campus scene all recreational facilities, the Nebraska Unions, the Health Center, and the residence halls. Eliminate all student services such as counseling, career services, and study skills programs; all student organizations and activities, and government groups; and all campus programs: films, concerts, dances, workshops, performing arts, intramural sports, etc.

What remains represents the core of higher education: the academic curriculum. Everything else, some would say, is unnecessary. But is it? American educators have long recognized that college students develop not only intellectually, but physically, socially, and emotionally as well, and that these dimensions of human development are interrelated. Educators know, too, that academic achievement can be helped or hindered by the quality of campus life.

Thus, most American universities offer more than classrooms and instructors. They provide services, facilities,and programs designed to make the institution a community where most students' interests and needs can be met. At UNL, as elsewhere, some of these facilities, services, opportunities, and programs are self-sustaining; some are supported by tuition and tax monies; others are financed by "student fees," or what UNL calls University Program and Facilities Fees (UPFF).Although paid by students for programs and services oriented to students, UPFF assessments are not "user fees." They are, rather, part of the cost of attending the University. All enrolled students, even those who may be pursuing an off-campus course such as student teaching, are assessed student fees along with tuition, whether or not they expect to take advantage of fee-funded facilities and services that particular semester. Like taxes that we pay within the larger communities in which we live, student fees are essential to the support of vital functions within the University community, in this case, functions that enrich, enliven and humanize the institution.

How Decisions About Spending Student Fees Are Made

In accordance with the Bylaws of the Board of Regents, the total income from University Program and Facilities Fees is divided into two portions: Fund A is used to fund programs and activities managed by student groups; Fund B is used to make bond payments and fund staff salaries and operating costs for various student services and maintenance of related facilities.

ASUN (Association of Students of the University of Nebraska) recommends to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs all assessments and disbursements of Fund A monies, preparing its recommendations on the basis of annual budget requests submitted by eligible student organizations. To fulfill this responsibility, ASUN has established a Committee for Fees Allocation (CFA) composed of three ASUN senators and ten students elected with positions apportioned as follows: residence halls (2), Greek houses (1), off campus (4), one student with an East Campus major and/or residence (1), one graduate student (1), and one at-large student (1). The Vice Chancellor forwards ASUN's recommendations to the Chancellor along with any suggested modifications, and the Chancellor makes final decisions on Fund A allocations.

Decisions on the allocation of Fund B are made by the Board of Regents upon the recommendation of the Chancellor. It has been customary for ASUN's Committee for Fees Allocation to review annual budget requests submitted by Fund B agencies and to make recommendations through ASUN to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs on UPFF Fund B assessments, as well as on those in the Fund A category. The UPFF Fund B assessment includes a $95.50 per student per semester debt service assessment that is mandated by the University's bond agreements, and thus, this portion of the Fund B is not subject to change. These bonds funded construction and renovations of the Nebraska Unions, University Health Center and the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center. In addition, bonds have been issued to fund the planning, design, and construction of the Outdoor Adventures Center, East Campus Wellness and Recreation Center, and renovation of the Campus Recreation Center.

The Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs is the University officer directly responsible for most UPFF-funded agencies and functions. Questions about the use of UPFF funds should be directed to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, 106 Canfield Administration Building.

In regard to UPFF assessments and allocations, as in all other matters, the University of Nebraska does not discriminate on the basis of gender, age, disability, race, color, religion, marital status, veterans status, national or ethnic origin or sexual orientation.
