The Departmentally Related Activities Committee, (DRAC) was established in the 1970’s as one of 4 constituents represented on the Services and Activities Fee Committee. DRAC’s primary function is to develop budgets and distribute Services and Activities Fees specifically to the departmentally related student activities.
Currently five departmental members including Forensics, Music, Theatre and Dance, Publications, and International Affairs Association make up the Departmentally Related Activities Committee. Each of the five departments is represented by one faculty advisor and one student with voting privileges. Additional voting members include two at-large students and a representative from Enrollment and Student Services.
Throughout the year DRAC holds 2 or 3 meeting each quarter. Fall quarter meetings are focused on electing officers and representatives. Updates and orientations are also on the agenda for fall quarter. Winter quarter focuses on preparing budgets and presenting departmental budgets to the committee. Upon approval by the committee, departmental budgets are compiled for presentation to the Services and Activities Committee. During spring quarter the DRAC budgets along with the other S&A Fee Committee member budgets are presented to the S&A Fee Committee for discussion and approval. If reserves are available they are discussed along with any other business items.
