January 11, 2017 at 09:00 am
The Student Life Enhancement Fund is now taking submissions for ideas to help enhance student life and/or student services on campus. No idea is too big or too small: submit your ideas here until January 27, 2017.
The Student Life Enhancement Fund (SLEF) provides seed capital and financial support for student-run and University-based service providers to expand their programming, infrastructure and/or operations. The fund is intended for initiatives that demonstrate commitment to improving and enhancing student life and is administered by the Student Services Committee (SSC). The membership of the SSC consists of representatives from the MSU and the University. Click here for more information.
“The Student Life Enhancement Fund is an incredibly important part of the student experience at McMaster. SLEF is a direct representation of students being able to turn their ideas into meaningful action,” says Ryan MacDonald, MSU Vice President (Finance) and member of the SSC. “If you have a great idea, it only takes a minute to submit it and potentially make a huge impact on student life.”
Last year, thanks to the ideas and subsequent voting by McMaster students, new seating, lounge space, Compass improvements, microwaves and electrical outlets were installed in the Student Centre. In addition, a new fitness and boulder circuit has been installed near the track field, across from Les Prince. What great ideas will be funded this year?

The submissions will be checked for feasibility, and then categorized into themes for voting. Voting will occur February 6-12, and the winning idea will be tabulated no later than February 17.
