Proposal Signature Requirements

All Senate proposals for funding must be accompanied by a petition signed by members of the UA.

Up to $10,000 25 Signatures Per $1,000 Requested
$10,000 - $20,000 350 Signatures
$20,000 + 500 Signatures

If funds requested fall between two different thousand markers, the group should round up to determine the number of signatures required (ex. $2,100 = 75 signatures). 

What constitutes a conference?

For an activity to be considered a conference, it must meet all four components listed below:

  1. official registration (not necessarily with a cost)
  2. networking opportunities between professionals and students
  3. learning/educational component (could including presenting)
  4. connection to students' professional pathways/goals
