The Athletic Fee Accountability Committee (AFAC) oversees the spending of the Athletic Fee and approves projects proposed by students, campus administration, and the Athletic Department to better athletes on campus. The Environmental Sustainability Fee Accountability Committee (ESFAC) performs the same role as AFAC with the Environmental Sustainability Fee. Lastly, the Organizational Activities Fee Review Committee (OAF) reviews the finances and general operation of the three fee-based organizations on campus: Student Government, the Funds Allotment Council (FAC), and the Student Activities Board (SAB), as well as ESFAC and AFAC. OAF seeks to determine what changes, if any, should be made to the amount each student is charged for each fee, and also makes recommendations as to what each organization/committee can do to operate in a more responsible an transparent way to better the campus.
