The Educational Activities mission is to support the cultural and intellectual community on campus, to address the needs of students who are members of an underrepresented group, and to increase student retention through the contribution of extracurricular programs.
The Educational Activities committee provides annual financial support to recognized student organizations at Oregon State University. This unique budgeting board allocates funds received from Student Incidental Fees to organizations approved by the Educational Activities Committee.

Becoming part of the Ed-Act committee is large commitment. The committee invests time in the fall term to make sure that committee members are trained well to evaluate and approve budgets, then in turn to use those skills gained fall term and apply them to the budget hearings the committee holds during winter term.
It is vital that anyone who decides to become a part of the Ed-Act committee maintains a strong commitment to attend meetings. Information is disseminated at meetings that typically cannot be easily translated later. The committee also has to maintain a certain amount of voting members at each meeting in order to transact business of the committee.
Winter term is the committee's busiest time of the year where several meetings that can last from one to three hours each are held each week during the budget hearing process. Anyone who thinks that they would not be able to meet at least three times a week during winter term may not want to make a commitment to being on the Ed-Act committee. Fall and spring term are not as demanding and less meetings are held, but attendance at those meetings are equally as important as the committee makes year round budgetary and guideline decisions.
The Ed-Act Committee looks great on your resume and you can also get a class credit. If you are interested in joining please contact Drew Hatlen for more information.
