Board Of Directors Revokes TAMID’s Budget For Violating Rules

BARUCH COLLEGE–TAMID, a Hillel-affiliated business education club, had its budget revoked by the Baruch College’s Board of Directors because the club was found to be using student activity fee funds for member-exclusive events. Undergraduate Student Government President Radhika Kalani requested that TAMID be removed from USG’s budget request during the Oct. 18 meeting of the board, which allocates student activity fees, and the request was granted.

TAMID violated rules set by the Office of Student Life and CUNY in The Informer, which outlines the fiscal guidelines for the expenditure of student activity fees. “All programs and events receiving student activity fees must be open to the entire Baruch community and must be appropriately publicized and held on campus,” it specifies.
