All members of the Rensselaer Union have the right to know where the Activity Fee will be distributed to support the student experience. The Union Annual Report (UAR) was created to increase transparency in the budgeting process and contains information on Union expenses, sources of revenue, and the breakdown of the Activity Fee.
Rensselaer Union is one of the few student organizations in the country with a student activity fee allocated by a board consisting of only students. The Rensselaer Union budget is allocated by the Executive Board, which is comprised of fifteen students presided over by the President of the Union. Executive Board representatives collaborate with club officers throughout the budgeting process to review programs and funding needs.
Below is information regarding the Union Annual Report (UAR), as well as downloadable forms and historical documents.
*The Rensselaer Union budget for FY 2016 is not official until it has been approved by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Board of Trustees as of early March 2016. On February 19th, 2016, the Rensselaer Student Senate approved the Activity Fee recommendation (21-3-3) and the Union Annual Report (22-0-0). Both were also approved by the Union Annual Report Committee on February 18th, 2016 (10-0-0). The information contained in this Union Annual Report is public information to all members of the Rensselaer community.
