Campus Life Enrichment Committee Funding

CLEC, funded by Student Fees, funds intercultural programs that align with and support Pillar 3 of the Georgia Southern University Strategic Plan: Inclusive Excellence. This includes campus-wide lectures (general and academic), as well as lectures geared towards individual departments, organizations, and colleges. Up to $1,500 may be requested per event/proposal. Georgia Southern faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to submit proposals requesting funding for guest speakers, exhibitions, performances, or other events which will be held on campus during Fall 2020.

The deadline for receipt of Fall  2020 funding requests is October 2, 2020 at 5:00pm. Decision letters will be emailed to proposers on October 14, 2020. **NOTE: DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC only virtual event proposals will be reviewed by the CLEC committee for the FALL 2020 semester.**

Important criteria the committee considers when reviewing proposals:

  1. Clear, concise proposals with well-articulated goals and correct grammar and spelling have the best chance of being understood and valued by the review committee;
  2. Proposals with multiple sources of funding are given greater weight; and
  3. Proposals with an itemized budget for CLEC requested funds as well as non-CLEC requested funds and a clear justification for the amounts being requested have the best chance of being understood and valued by the review committee.

New Standards

Additionally, the Campus Life Enrichment Committee will be implementing new standards for proposals. Moving forward the following items must be included:

1) Collaborative Partners: Proposers must list collaborative partners and describe the capacity in which they will contribute to the project.

*Priority will be given to proposals with 2 or more partners*

2) Student Organization: Faculty proposers must work with a student organization sponsor.

3) Student Involvement: Proposers must describe the capacity in which students will be involved in the program outside of attending (i.e. helping with advertising, planning or set up, etc.).

4) Learning Outcomes and Inclusive Excellence: Proposals need to reflect at least one learning outcome related to inclusive excellence (pillar 3 of the strategic plan). Be sure to describe the specific objective. See Strategic Plan | Performance Excellence to download the strategic plan.

5) Originality: Priority will be given to original and innovative proposals.
