IRA Advisory Committee meetings are usually held in the Bell Memorial Union, room 205, and are open to anyone who would like to attend. If one of your advisors is requesting something from the Committee, they should plan on attending. Students are welcome to attend. The IRA funds come from their fees and it is important that they understand how the funds are being spent.

The Committee will entertain requests any time during the year for new activities/programs that would like to be certified (see qualification requirements).
