About Student Alliance
Student Alliance is a student-run organization that facilitates communication, sponsors events, and allocates funding to help students and student groups actualize the seven institute ideals. Listening to student voices, we build alliances, cultivate student leadership, and advocate for social change and transformation of existing power structures.
Student Alliance meets monthly. The meetings are open to all students. At meetings, all present have the opportunity to vote on new student group proposals and event proposals. Any student can propose a new student group or present a proposal for an event to be funded. The groups and events must be open to all students at CIIS in order to be funded by Student Alliance.
Tia Phillips is the current Student Alliance Coordinator and can be reached at email@example.com or in Room 401. Regina Gelfo is the Website Coordinator for the Student Alliance website and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The PAT (Proposal Action Team) team will meet sometime the week of Nov 11-15 to review applications for conference funding and childcare. Please contact Tia if you would like to participate. Snacks and some sort of incentive will be provided to students who participate (usually, a gift certificate to the cafe or bookstore).
ABOUT THE PROPOSAL ACTION TEAM
The Proposal Action Team is a team of students and sometimes staff that comes together to review the conference funding and SJRCSG (Social Justice Research and Community Service Grant) proposals to make sure they meet the criteria needed to apply, discuss any thoughts or concerns, and from there make decisions about who should go to the next round of voting.
The meetings are generally from 2-5 hours depending on how many proposals we receive and they can take place over multiple days as well. There are incentives for students to participate, like free food or a voucher to the bookstore or cafe. They usually take place the week after conference funding proposals and SJRCSG are due. The team is not fixed, and does not always contain the same people.
