Student government provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn about governance, planning events, and becoming a leader. It is a living laboratory where students can make decisions about how service and activity fees are spent and what types of events are happening at their center. Student government often supports educational, community service, and recreational activities.
The centers located at the Adult Education Center (AEC), Hillyard, Colville, Inchelium, Ione, Magnuson, Pullman, and Republic have their own student governments. To find out more about the student government at your center, visit the student activities advisers page.
In accordance with RCW 28B.15.045 — Intent — 2012 c 104: “The legislature recognizes that students play an important role in recommending how services and activities fees should be expended, as the majority of members of the services and activities fees committee at each institution of higher education. It is the intent of the legislature to increase transparency, so that expenditures of revenue from services and activities fees are clearly visible and accessible to the students who pay those fees.” [2012 c 104 § 1.]
The services and activities (S&A) budget at the IEL is determined by students and staff.
The 2011-12 end-of-the-year S&A budget report is available in PDF format.
