Gray Fund Committee

Committee information

We can't bring great events and plan exciting trips if we don't know what you want! The committee is generally working a semester to a year in advance. Please contact committee members with suggestions or email Jamila Dozier.

Decision making

We wish we could act on every suggestion, but we need to work within some boundaries. Here are some guidelines we will follow to determine if your idea for an on-campus event is plausible:

  • How much does the artist or speaker cost?
  • Will the attendance be proportional to the price?
  • Do we have an appropriately sized venue? Is it available on the same day the performer or speaker is available?
  • Can we provide for the technical needs of the person or group?
  • Over the course of four years, will everyone be able to say that there was at least one event that interested them?
  • Do the dates of the artist or speaker's availability and our available dates coincide?
