Hi there Gauchos, my name is Cierra Russell and I am a fourth year pursuing my degree in Feminist Studies & Sociology. Throughout my time here at UCSB I have grown tremendously thanks to the wonderful people and opportunities I have encountered these last three years and look forward to giving back as much as I can as I finish my undergraduate career. I am also a Second-Year Resident Assistant in the Santa Catalina Residence Hall as well as being in the NASPA Undergraduate Fellows Program, all in pursuits of continuing my involvement in Student Affairs and supporting students. SFAC has consistently allowed me to advocate on behalf of my fellow Gauchos and I am excited and privileged to work as the Chair of this committee for my final year, let's make it a good one!
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.
