Rep Talbot nominated SWAG for recently launching the SWAG Academy, a 10 week curriculum that teaches valuable life skills to undergraduate and graduate participants. By the end of the Academy, students will have discovered new talents and skills within and be able to parlay them on campus and beyond. Check them out at http://www.swagcornell.com/
The Cornell Model United Nations Conference (CMUNC) is truly a unique operation on Cornell's campus. As a completely student-run affair, it brings in nearly 700 high school students from around the nation and world to discuss international issues. With its multifaceted focus on professional, intellectual, and social skills CMUNC offers its staff of 100+ Cornellians many opportunities for growth. Through the nature of the debate that CMUNC facilitates and the real-world skills acquired through the event planning required, CMUNC creates dialogue and more impactful and unified student body - not only within Cornell but in all the high schools which participate.

Every year, all students pay a Student Activity Fee (SAF) in addition to their tuition. This fee is set and allocated by the Student Assembly under authority granted by the University President. The Student Assembly Appropriations Committee worked hard this past semester with the byline funded organizations and successfully determined the new 2014-2016 Student Activity Fee. President Skorton approved the new allocation of $236. This allocation process happens every other year. (Learn more about Cornell byline funding here).
