ASUA approves final funds for semester

The final ASUA Senate meeting this semester gives end-of-semester funding to a variety of clubs, as well as assesses where the body is halfway through their administration.

From the Nov. 22 meeting, two clubs received full funding and another was stricken from the agenda to allow for a new application to be submitted to the Appropriations Board.

Arizona Meditation Research Interest Group, which advocates for interdisciplinary groups of scholars at the UA and in Tucson, received funding for equipment to facilitate presentations at their twice-monthly meeting. This includes a liquid crystal display projector and public address system with a microphone and computer speakers.

Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma, band fraternities, gained full approval for their funding request to host a holiday concert in Gallagher Theater featuring both seasonal and UA-related songs.

Alpha Phi Omega, UA’s chapter of a national service fraternity, asked for monetary aid to attend an Atlanta. Ga., national convention for plane tickets, public transportation, hotel fees, event registration fees and meals, but was stricken from the agenda to submit a new request, which detailed item lists. This was due to Associated Students of the University of Arizona bylaws mandating specificity before funding. One board member abstained from this vote.

During Monday’s meeting, their resubmission yielded close to full funding for their request, as the board gave funding for all expenses outside of sweatshirts.

Global Water Brigades club also received close to full funding. The club, which creates water systems to prevent communicable diseases in communities with limited access to clean water, got the board’s approval for bracelets, printing and half the costs of 41 shirts.

The Capoeira Club of the UA, which works with Capoeira Mandinga Tucson to promote the practice of the martial art and Brazilian culture, got full funding for its shirt request.

Eta Sigma Phi, UA’s chapter of a national collegiate honors society for Latin and Greek students, gained some funding from the board to attend an annual conference, including plane tickets, hotel and event registration fees, but one flight was not funded because it violated ASUA bylaws.

In the meeting, an expense update for the semester, as well as code revisions, will be on the table for the ASUA Senate to discuss.
