What is the Programming Committee?
The Programming Committee is a standing committee that exists to provide funding for student organizations and campus departments planning extracurricular campus activities, programs, and resources for the students of Moorpark College.
Funding offered by the Programming Committee is made possible through the collection of an optional Student Activity Fee, as well as funding received from the Moorpark College Bookstore. The ASMC Director of Budget and Finance chairs the Programming Committee. This committee operates in accordance with California's open meeting law (the Brown Act).
What does the committee prioritize when considering applications?
The Committee prioritizes events or activities that build leadership, encourage academic success, and/or enhance campus life at Moorpark College. Check out the Programming Committee funding distribution summary to learn more about the types of activities that were supported over the last academic year:
Is there anything that the committee will not fund?
The Programming Committee distributes optional student fees, which cannot be used toward expenses that the college should cover (such as class supplies or field trips that are part of the curriculum). Student fees must be used toward current students and cannot be used to pay for expenditures benefitting faculty or staff, with the exception of funding for extracurricular field trips as a college employee is required to go and therefore a funding request could include the price of covering the employee's travel.
Please contact email@example.com for a more comprehensive list of things that can and cannot be funded by the ASMC Programming Committee.
