Elections occur at three different points during the year. At the end of every Spring semester full senate elections are held for the following academic year. At the beginning of the fall semester, first-years are elected. If there are still vacancies (meaning not enough people ran in certain constituencies), the Elections Committee is formed and candidates submit resumées to be evaluated and potentially interviewed. Finally, if Senators decide to study abroad in the Spring semester or otherwise leave, the Elections Committee is formed again to fill the vacancies.
If your event is through a Senate-recognized organization, you may submit a funding request to our Allocations Committee. To do so, visit LINC, sign in, and select the grid icon next to your profile picture. In the dropdown menu, select manage. From here, scroll down to memberships and select your club. On the left hand side of the screen, select Finance and then press the blue button saying "Create Funding Request." For more detailed information on this process and tips on how to submit a great application, click here. (answers with allocations committee and SSAF)
If your event is through a non-Senate recognized organization, you are unfortunately uneligible for funding. Other funding options are: Dean of Students Co-Sponsorship Fund, Student Opportunity Fund, and Lehigh After Dark.
If your event is not directly affiliated with an organization, you may be eligible to apply for the Student Senate Action Fund (SSAF). The Student Senate Action Fund is designed to provide a funding resource for non-clubs to put on an innovative, one-time event that positively contributes to the greater Lehigh community. Ideal SSAF events represent the values and mission of Lehigh University well, provide a clear expected participation are open to the greater Lehigh community, and include an undergraduate in the planning process. To apply for the SSAF, first fill out this form. After submission, interested parties will present to Student Senate’s Executive Board, and if approved by the Executive Board, the Board will present the recommendation to Full Senate. The Executive Board has the authority to determine the recommended funding amount if different from the original request, and Full Senate will make the final decision on whether or not the funding will be granted.
- If you're a first-year: first-year constituency (even if you're an athlete)
