Hey Gauchos! My name is Buki Akinyemi and I am a fourth year pursuing my degree in Biopsychology. Looking back on these past three years, I am grateful for the opportunities and people that I have had the pleasure of meeting and I am looking forward to giving back to the UCSB community as my time here comes to an end. In addition to my service on this wonderful committee, I work as an ACE Chemistry tutor for CLAS, am a Resident Assistant in the San Joaquin Apartments, and am a proud McNair Scholar. Students are always at the center of every decision made by the committee; your needs matter to me and they matter to us! In my third and final year serving on the committee and I am excited for the opportunity to serve as Chair of SFAC where I can continue to serve the needs of my fellow Gauchos. Let�s have another great year!
The SFAC consists of twelve voting members, three non-voting advisors, and five non-voting ex-officio representatives from the Associated Students (AS) and the Graduate Students Association (GSA). The twelve voting members are drawn from a cross-section of the campus population which either pay the Fee, use Reg Fee Services, or are involved in the Student Fee Administration process. The voting members consist of two seniors, two juniors, two sophomores, two graduate students, two staff representatives, and two faculty representatives. The advisors are from the Planning and Budget Office as well as the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Office. The ex-officio representatives include three positions from AS (the President and both internal and External Vice-Presidents) and two from the GSA (External and Internal Presidents). These ex officio representatives are on the Committee to provide information and coordination between the SFAC and other student groups on campus.
Appointments to the Committee are for a tenure of three years. This is to insure that a high degree of expertise is maintained among Committee members and to provide for continuity. The nature of many Committee decisions is such that programs, issues, and solutions are on-going events which not only require some historical perspective, but also a great deal of foresight. Only experienced Committee members can most effectively deal with these types of events.
