$200,000 budget cut limits funding for student organizations - Caleb Wilsn, UMKC News

A recent budget cut has put a strain on funding UMKC’s student organizations. The Student Activity Fee Committee (SAFC) is a student-run committee that decides which organizations have their budgets fulfilled. This year, the SAFC was faced with a  $200,000 cut to its budget, an over 20% decrease from $700,000 to $500,000.  “The decrease in student funds has definitely harmed and limited the number of events we can do for the student body here on campus,” said Latinx Student Union (LSU) President Henry Ortega-Hernandez.
