After much discussion, the Student Services Finance Committee decided to deny funding for Multicultural Student Coalition Thursday.
For an organization to be eligible for funding from the SSFC, they must fill out eligibility applications and present their plan to the committee.
During their eligibility hearing, however, MCSC was unable to accurately and definitively answer questions about their core programming, Rep. Henry Galles.
Rep. Rep. Zaakir Abdul-Wahid echoed similar views regarding concern with both their core and supportive programming. The eligibility document they sent to the SSFC was a “loose guideline” rather than an actual plan, Abdul-Wahid said.

“We’ve never seen an eligibility application riddled with as many errors as the one we saw on Monday [from MCSC],” Rep. Jeremy Swanson said.

After 20 minutes of discussing the eligibility application for MCSC, SSFC ultimately denied MCSC eligibility in a vote of 0-8-3.
