Committee Seeks Proposals for Beverage Contract Funds

What projects do you think St. Thomas should fund with beverage contract money?

St. Thomas students, faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals to the Beverage Committee. The committee approves funding for support of student-focused initiatives using the proceeds from an exclusive beverage contract with Pepsi. Over the past several years the contract funds have been used to fund a variety of needs and projects that may not have regular sources of funding. The average cost of items funded is approximately $1,500.

Applications are accepted throughout the academic year. The committee typically meets twice a year, in late fall and again in March or early April, to review proposals.

The application is available on the Campus Life website.

To receive consideration:

  • Proposals must be for the purchase of durable goods that will enhance the student experience.
  • The item purchased should have a life cycle of at least three years.
  • Any recognized student organization or university department may request funding.
  • Requests from departments must have the signatures of the department heads indicating their agreement to maintain any equipment after its purchase.

Items purchased through the Beverage Committee funding are University of St. Thomas property. Purchases must comply with campus purchasing guidelines.

To ensure consideration of your proposal this semester, submit your application to Campus Life (Mail #4024) before noon Tuesday, March 15.
