Program Activities Board (PAB)

The Program Activities Board (PAB) is one of the major funding boards at UCLA for student programming. The PAB is established to provide student representation and participation in the administration and apportionment of Registration Fees for student programming. The Board allocates funds designated for student programming, evaluates and regulates this programming in cooperation with the University Administration, and provides a forum for soliciting student views on Board allocations and funding priorities. PAB is composed of two main committees: the Campus Programs Committee (CPC) and the Community Activities Committee (CAC). The CPC also maintains a MINIFUND for small event programming. Should student programmers feel that they have offered a program within the constraints given, and have been denied by one of the principal Committees, and that there has been a violation of due process, they may ask the Program Activities Board Appellate Review Board (ARB) to consider their grievance. The PAB and its respective entities are operated through the Student Organizations, Leadership & Engagement (SOLE) office who is the main contact point for more information.

Campus Programs Committee (CPC)

CPC provides funds for student initiated, student-organized cultural and education programs that take place at UCLA. The target audience for these programs should be UCLA. The exception to this are events that bring youth and/or community college students on campus for educational and outreach programs. These programs can apply to the CPC Youth Programming Fund for support.  To access information about the CPC funding go here - https://sa.ucla.edu/funding/fund/client

Campus Life Support for Student Programming (SSP) Fund

Campus Life Funding

Campus Life Funding, administered by the Office of the Assistant Vice Chancellor, provides supplemental funding for student activities and programs that benefit the campus community. These funds are open to all registered campus organizations and official student governments. Funding is managed through the RCO funding system at https://sa.ucla.edu/funding/fund/client. Currently there are 2 funding applications:

 

REF (Recreation Venues Event Fund) specifically funds labor and custodial expenses associated with the use of Recreation spaces by student activities/organizations for practices, performances, programs, meetings and events.  There is no rental fee for student organizations to use Recreation spaces. Please review the REF Funding Guidelines available at www.campuslife.ucla.edu/funding.

 

Campus Life Support for Student Programming (SSP) funds aim to provide supplemental support for student activities and programs that benefit the campus community. Through SSP, student groups have access to additional resources for program/event needs that do not meet traditional funding resources guidelines, have timing issues, or are supplemental to funds awarded by student committees. To best assess the outstanding need and allocate funding accordingly, Campus Life requires information on your total event cost, confirmed funding and pending funding. SSP allocates funding for food, transportation, facilities, supplies, advertising and transportation. Limited honoraria funding is available. All funding allocations will be made on a viewpoint-neutral basis. Please review the Campus Life SSP Funding Guidelines available at www.campuslife.ucla.edu/funding.

 

Due to budget reductions, Campus Life SSP funding is very limited for 2019-20. In general, Campus Life does not fund expenses related to purchase/repair of equipment, retreats, conference travel, performance fees, decorations, flowers, or gifts to participants.
