Student Activities Funding Commission Moves Club Sports Budgetary Decisions to Funding Council, Lowers Spending Cap

Beginning this semester, the Student Activities Funding Commission — responsible for allocating the budget to support over 500 student organizations on campus — moved funding decisions for club sports to the Cornell Club Sports Council with a lowered spending cap, complicating funding for equipment, uniforms and other sports team needs.

The CSC announced this change in July so that the corresponding funding council would fund organizations that fall within their scope, and the leading commissioners, who are the most knowledgeable in their field, can review the budget.

The CSC also said in the past, clubs have not spent their total allocated funding. Thus, the CSC said that lowering the cap could promote funding flexibility and avoid some clubs storing funds that went unused. However, the CSC’s changes have hindered the teams’ ability to replace equipment, pay for training fields and hold or attend games.
