Agency Account Deadlines

Treasurers and Presidents: Now is the time to reconcile your 2017-2018 budget, so your student organization knows how it managed resources this year and where it stands financially. Make sure all bills are paid, members are reimbursed, funds are deposited and income/expenses are well documented for next year’s officers.

Your student organization’s account balance and transaction listing can be viewed on AggieLife. Presidents/Primary Leaders and Treasurers/Financial Officers have access to the Finance tab. Visit your organization, click Manage Organization, then click Finance in the toolbar.

Finalize All Agency Account Business by June 21

  • Agency Account Transaction Request Formand corresponding documents must be submitted by June 21. Any approvals must be submitted by the authorized approver from the department. Any submissions after June 21 will not be processed until after fiscal close on June 30.
  • Confirm that your campus service providers will process any pending charge by this date.

Questions related to agency account transactions can be referred to Samantha Alcantara at stalcantara@ucdavis.edu.

Freeborn Locker Applications Still Available

The lockers in Lower Freeborn are a great place for Registered Student Organizations to store their tabling supplies and other materials.

Clean Out Your CSI Mailbox by June 30

Be sure to clean out your mailbox in the Center for Student Involvement (442 MU) and collect anything important before the end of spring quarter. Your last chance to recover the contents will be June 30. Incoming first class mail will be returned and the rest recycled.

If you do not register by June 30, 2018, your registration will expire and your current mailbox number will be discontinued and possibly reassigned to another student organization. For student organizations that have off-campus bank accounts or other community partnerships, maintaining registration and your current mailbox number will ensure effective transition from the 2017-2018 to the 2018-2019 academic year.

Call for Nominations: 2019-2020 Campus Community Book Project

The Campus Council on Community and Diversity (CCC&D) invites all members of the campus and greater community to nominate books related to the topic of violence/gun violence for the 2019-2020 Campus Community Book Project (CCBP).

As an educational institution, we endeavor to explore and engage thoughtfully about issues that impact our lives, directly and indirectly, with the goal of building a community that promotes diversity. You can read more about the 2019-2020 CCBP theme and call for nominations here. The Campus Community Book Project aims to foster dialogue among students, faculty, staff, and residents of the surrounding areas about important social issues. It also promotes learning about varied perspectives and ideas concerning the chosen topic.

We welcome nominations of books that meet the following criteria:

  • Compelling and thought-provoking to engage us in dialogue about contemporary controversial issues and to raise questions that have many possible answers.
  • Well-written, accessible, and engaging to a general audience.
  • Short enough to be read within the time frame usually allotted for coursework.
  • Provocative and intriguing to as many members of the community as possible, to invite diverse participation and integration into discussion groups and courses across disciplines.
  • Written by someone who is still living. Author is a guest to the campus.
  • Any published work that is still in print in paperback – including non-fiction work, plays, novels, collections of short stories or essays – is eligible.
  • An additional consideration for the recommended title is that the book’s author will be available to speak as part of the Mondavi Center’s Speakers Series for the 2019-2020 season.

To make a nomination, contact Megan Macklin, CCBP Coordinator, at mrmacklin@ucdavis.edu. Please include the book title and author, plus a short description and explanation of why the nominated title complements the topic and represents a worthy selection. The CCBP Selection Committee will begin reviewing nominations in late July, so book recommendations are requested by July 13, 2018.

If you are interested in serving on the CCBP Selection Committee, which will review the nominated books, please contact Megan Macklin at mrmacklin@ucdavis.edu. The committee meets through the summer and more frequently in the fall as it proceeds to final selection.

For more information about the book project and past selections, please visit the CCBP website. The Campus Community Book Project is sponsored by the Office of Campus Community Relations, the Campus Council on Community and Diversity, and the Offices of the Chancellor and Provost.
