CSO Funding Committee

← Campus Center Home

The UH Hilo Chartered Student Organization (CSO) Funding Committee serves as an advisory committee to the UH Hilo CSOs including the UH Hilo Student Association (UHHSA), Student Activities Council (SAC), Board of Student Publications (BOSP), Board of Media Broadcasting (BOMB), and Campus Center Fee Board (CCFEE).

The purpose of this committee is to provide opportunities to UH Hilo Registered Independent Student Organizations (RISOs), departments and programs to request financial support to develop their own programming and services enriching student life at UH Hilo. The mandatory student fees are collected and expended in accordance with each CSO’s mission and philosophy. Although providing funding for UH Hilo RISOs, departments and programs is not part of the CSO's missions, they do recognize the contributions that these groups provide and it's positive impact on student life at UH Hilo.
