2015 - 2016 Budgets & Finances

This page contains CGS Budgets & Financial documents from the August 2015 - July 2016 Academic Year. these budgets are drafted by the CGS treasurer, presented for feedback, and then adjusted and voted upon in a 2 month process that typically takes place over the summer preceding the academic year of the budget in question (e.g., the budget for 23-24 was voted on in summer 23). Initial and amended budgets, budget updates and reports, legislation concerning budgets or financial information for CGS, and any other appropriately publicly postable documents are here. 

If you are looking for specific materials not found here, please reach out to the current vice president and secretary (contact info can be found under About Us, Leadership Team) to be assisted in locating specific materials. Please note that due to the nature of CGS as a student organization, certain budget or financial materials contain identifying information that cannot be shared due to FERPA protections or other privacy laws. We will always do our best to share as much information as allowed without violating student confidentiality.
