How does my organization request funding for the upcoming school year?
Organizations may submit an annual budget to the Finance Committee for consideration during Spring Allocation. To participate in Spring Allocation organizations must formulate a budget according to the guidelines presented in the Spring Allocation Information Packet. Organizations should submit their budgets for the 2013-2014 school year to Treasurer Anvesh Kompelli by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27.
How does my organization apply for discretionary funding?
If your organization needs funding beyond what was requested through Spring Allocation, Senate's Finance Committee accepts requests for discretionary funding. To submit a request, complete the Events/Projects Discretionary Request Form. Submit it via email to Treasurer Anvesh Kompelli by 3:00 p.m. on FRIDAY. Finance Committee will make a recommendation, and Senate will approve, deny, or amend the request on the following Tuesday. For more information about FinCom, click here.

What is the Student Senate's stance on campus diversity?
Senate is a student-led organization charged with participating in the
governance of the college community, giving direction and voice to student
concerns, and providing a framework for a number of activities and services for
students. Senate is committed to promoting
community acceptance and celebration of diversity. While Senate’s authority over individuals in
our community is limited, we seek to work with student leaders to spread a
message of respect for others on our campus.
Any concerns brought to Senate regarding discrimination are taken very
seriously by our organization. We
encourage and invite constituents to share feelings or suggestions with Senate
so that we can ensure students are comfortable within our community. Students have several avenues for sharing
feedback with Senate on such issues including: our anonymous online suggestion
box (www.Hendrix.edu/Senate/Suggestions), Senators, Multicultural Development
Committee representatives, and the Executive Committee (Senate@hendrix.edu).
Additionally, other resources such as the Multicultural and
International Student Services (MISS) Office, Student Activities Office, Student
Affairs Office, and Diversity Concerns Committee are also resources available
Senate is a venue for sharing concerns, and
we pledge to help facilitate discussion and educate our peers on them. We stand up as a leader against
discrimination of any sort against any individual, and we encourage students to
act with respect in their personal decisions.
As a community, we must recognize that this is a discussion not for one
organization but for the entire student body.
