The SFAC reviews new campus proposals and the modification of current category II and III fees in order to provide advice to the campus President on A) how to proceed with appropriate and meaningful consultation, and B) adjustments to campus mandatory and course-based fees.

Beginning in the 2019-20 AY, in addition to the overarching responsibilities and purview of the SFAC, the Committee provided direct oversight to the Recreation & Athletics Fee and Student Health Fees. During the year, the SFAC heard presentations from Campus Recreation and Student Wellness who provide oversight and day-to-day management over the Recreation & Athletics, Student Health Services, and Health
Facility fees.
