SSFC Secretary Brett DuCharme says he believes the Adventure Learning Programs has adequately outlined its 2015-'16 budget.

ALPS receives funding from SSFC

Adventure Learning Programs received a $155,049.58 budget for 2015-'16 Thursday from the Students Services Finance Committee, while the Working Class Student Union made a budget request for the upcoming fiscal year.

ALPS is a student group that teaches students core values through adventure-based and experiential activities.

SSFC Secretary Brett DuCharme, however, moved to increase the telephone budget line item to $460 from $250, per a request made by committee members. After a committee vote, the item was changed to the requested amount.

Committee members also voted to decrease the software/hardware budget item from $2389 to $1380 after determining that it was appropriate to anticipated expenses.

There had been questions regarding food costs for trainings and conferences held by ALPS, but DuCharme decided the request was a fair amount.

“ALPS has, I feel, sufficiently proved that they need these trainings and these conferences,” DuCharme said.

WCSU also presented to the committee, requesting a $49, 187.12 budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

WSCU is a student organization that works to “support and advocate for first-generation, low income, working-class students,” according to Hong B. Trinh, the group’s finance director.

The group’s core programming includes events for Working Class celebration month, peer advocacy film screening and a working class art night.

In addition to budget line items that were revised from last year’s budget, WCSU requested funding for its kickoff event, which is a new item being hosted by the group in the upcoming year.

SSFC will make a decision on WCSU’s 2015-'16 budget at its next meeting Monday.
