CAB Community Proposals for Spring 2022 Events

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 Spring 2022. 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.

Community Proposals for Spring 2022 are due to CAB by Monday, Nov. 22, 2021 no later than 11:45pm.

Here are links to the information you need to understand the process and complete the application request:

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

Decision-making criteria is below and 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 expected to attend?
  •  What will the funding be spent for and are these expenditures within the CUNY fiscal guidelines for Student Activity Fees?
  •  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 Chinese Moon Festival and Global Kitchen events with the Center for Global Engagement, events for Hispanic Heritage Month with Pluralism & Diversity, and musical performances with the Performing and Creative Arts Department. Funding has also been provided for programs to strengthen the community and promote pride in CSI such as CSI’s Got Talent and Honors Convocation.

CAB will review the Spring 2022 proposals that are received by the Monday, Nov. 22, 2021 by the 11:45pm deadline at a December meeting.  Please note that since CAB funding requests must be approved by Student Government and the CSI Association, approvals may not be finalized until January/February.
