Fund Allocation Application

This fund is provided by the College of Arts and Sciences through CASSAB to financially support Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) that make an impact on students of the college by contributing to the rich and multifaceted student life experience through experiential opportunities and academic engagement. Applicants may request $100 to $750 in funding to meet their organization’s goals.


Arts and Sciences Student Appreciation Days

This is an annual event held each spring semester to reward the students of the college for their hard work. The events include activities, a speaker, music and food, all provided by us.

Dean's Tea

Each fall semester college faculty from the Dean's Office are invited to meet with the board. This is a time for open discussion between the students and Dean's Office faculty for students to better understand the role of the Dean's Office and ask any questions they may have. The board provides food and beverage for the event, which occurs during a regularly scheduled meeting time.

Committee Work

Members of the board hold seats on multiple committees in the college. 

Dean's Lunches

At least once a semester, members of the board are invited to sign up to have lunch with the dean. These lunches are designed to create a casual and open dialogue between the students and the dean. Discussions often involve activities and issues relating to the college and to the lives of both the dean and the students. 

This is a fun and valuable experience for both the dean and the students. Lunch is held in the Nebraska Union and provided by our group.

Teaching Assistant Award

Each fall the board awards an outstanding Teaching Assistant in the college. Nominations are solicited from the student population, and reviewed by the TA Award Director. The award recipient receives a monetary award and is recognized in front of the college faculty.
