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 twenty 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. 

Union Annual Report

Each year, the Rensselaer Union publishes the Union Annual Report (UAR) to inform students how their Activity Fee will be allocated in the upcoming fiscal year (July 1–June 30).

Please contact the Union Annual Report Committee at with any questions or concerns about the budgeting process, the UAR, or the Activity Fee.
