The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is the programming board that allocates an earmarked portion of the Student Activity Fee for social, cultural, educational, and community service programs. CAB is beginning the process of identifying programs for Fall 2017.  If your department is planning a program for students and believes that CAB may be interested in co-sponsoring the event, we encourage you to submit a request for funding.

Information about the Community Proposal Submission Process may be found on the CSI Website. The application is Web-based and can be found on CSI CONNECT.

Community Proposals for Fall 2017 are due to CAB by Sunday, Apr. 23, 2017 by 11:45pm. Submit a proposal by accessing the online form. It is strongly recommended that you call the Campus Activities Board Office at 718.982.2816 or 718.982.3268 to confirm receipt of your proposal.  It is suggested that you print the form prior to submitting the document for your records. You can print by right clicking your mouse and printing the screen. If you have an SLAS (student) account, please log in to this account. If you do not have an SLAS account and would like one to access the full features of CSI CONNECT as well as the ability to save and access your grant request at a later date, please call Debi Kee at 718.982.3268 or email the request to It takes a few days for an account to be set up, so please plan accordingly. 

CAB sets aside a limited amount of monies per semester for community proposal funding. CAB will not approve funds in an amount more than $1,500 for any specific proposal. In addition, an individual department may submit as many events as it chooses, but CAB will only fund one event per department.

In making decisions regarding funding, CAB considers the following questions:

  • Does CAB already do this? Does this fill a need for students that CAB is currently not providing?
  • Are CSI students the target audience? If not, who is the target audience?
  • What is the approximate number of students in the target audience? Is it within the fiscal guidelines?
  • Will the proposed program interest CSI students?
  • Does this program have a history with CAB? Has the event been done well in the past?
  • What part of the CAB mission does this meet? (Social, Cultural, Educational, Service)

CAB has funded numerous campus programs including “Feminists Are Funny” with the Women’s Center, International Film Series with the Center for International Service; the Spring Festival with the School of Education, and Majors and Minors Week with the Center for Advising and Academic Success. Funding has also been provided for programs to strengthen the community and promote pride in CSI such as the Relay for Life and both CSI’s Freshman Convocation and Honors Convocation.

CAB will review the Fall 2017 proposals that are received by the Apr. 23, 2017 deadline at a May meeting. Please note that since CAB funding requests must be approved by Student Government and the CSI Association, approvals may not be finalized until late July/August.

Thank you in advance for helping to make CSI a place where things happen. We look forward to receiving your program ideas.
