Approved Fund Allocation 2013

During 2013, the University of New England's (UNE) Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) Committee continued the important work of managing the implementation of the SSAF. On 30 July 2013, eleven students were elected to represent the new student body, UNESA (UNE Student Association), which was incorporated on 26 June 2013. UNESA comprises representatives from all modes of attendance at UNE. Their representatives engaged in SSAFC deliberations throughout the year. Over 60 activities and services funded by the fee were undertaken by a wide range of stakeholders in 2013, including student clubs and societies. An Annual Report summarising activity over the entire year is available below.

Through regular meetings of SSAFC in 2013, UNE has met Commonwealth requirements that a formal process of consultation with democratically elected student representatives is provided regarding the specific uses of proceeds from SSAF. Priorities for the use of fee revenue have received considerable attention at these meetings. Further, the SSAF strategic funding framework recognises the importance of the democratic election of student representatives and student engagement as key to the future of UNE.

Following is a detailed breakdown of SSAF expenditure and allocations for the 2013 calendar year.
