Every Tufts undergraduate student pays a Student Activities Fee, used to facilitate events and programming on campus. The TCU Senate has the authority to oversee and distribute student activities money to all clubs given official recognition status by the TCU Judiciary. Daily operations are handled by the TCU Treasury (the TCU Treasurer, Associate Treasurer, and Assistant Treasurer). Requests for supplementary funding are heard weekly by the Treasury and 7 members of the Allocations Board, whose members are internally elected from within the Senate.
The total Student Activities Budget is over $2 million. As you can see below, the majority of funds are distributed to over 300 student organizations that are entirely run by Tufts students. There is also money set aside for Club Sports, organizations on the SMFA campus, and stipends for leadership positions filled by students receiving grant-based financial aid.
Note: Clicking on the pie chart will take you to our publicly accessible database of budgets for all TCU-recognized student groups, which are categorized into the ten main groups visible above (Cultural, Programming, Media, Religious, Performance, Miscellaneous, Pre-Professional, Political, Student Government, and Engineering). Annual budgetary decisions are made on a wide variety of factors including but not limited to: group membership, event scale and frequency, material and labor costs, demonstrated financial responsibility, and the availability of resources.
