Meet the Hart House Ambassadors
There are many U of T students who think of Hart House as their second home. These students attend all the events, like to get involved and especially love to tell their friends about the great time they’re having. You’ve probably already seen them around the House, and now’s your chance to get to know them. Meet our Hart House Ambassadors!
Check back here in the summer for 2013-14 applications.
Hart House Finance Committee Student Membership
Hart House’s Finance Committee provides opportunities to learn valuable skills in financial management by participating in conversations and decisions about budgetary and financial policies and issues. We welcome students from all disciplines (it’s an opportunity for students enrolled in finance-related degree programs to bring theory to practice; and we also provide educational training sessions for students without a financial background). Skills acquired through involvement as a committee member can be applied to both individual and organizational financial management. The Finance Committee mandate applies to all financial aspects of Hart House with particular focus on the following:
- Participate in advising the Board of Stewards on policies that affect the financial management of the House
- Analyze the annual budget
- Make recommendations for the House’s long-range plans
- Consider capital expense requests
- Monitor financial operating performance
- Oversee the annual audit process
- Participate in the Audit Sub-Committee

Hart House Good Ideas Fund Student Committee 2013
Do you want to support the growth of good ideas on campus?
The Hart House Good Ideas Fund GIF is designed to provide support for activities and events that significantly contribute to student life on all three U of T campuses. The Fund is open to all full- or part-time students and to any student group based at the University of Toronto and its outlying campuses. The Good Ideas Fund is administered through Hart House and the Committee is composed of UofT students. Eligible students can be part- or full- time students in either graduate or undergraduate studies, across all three campuses.
The Hart House Good Ideas Fund (GIF) is accepting Student Committee applications for the Summer 2013 academic term! Volunteer applicants should have some experience in the decision making processes of funding allocation. Chosen applicants will sit on a Committee of 3-5 members and meet monthly to assess applications to the fund and help in the decision making process that will determine how well applicants meet the criteria for the fund.
Volunteers will work together to decide: whether the activities or events described in applications enhance or have a significant impact on campus student life; to what extent they promote diversity, collaboration, and interaction between student groups; and the impact of the project on the U of T student community by taking a close look at application budgets, funding requirements, the event, its target audience and promotions plans.
The GIF provides funding for activities and projects which contribute to student life on campus, and is open to all full or part-time U of T students and to any U of T student group.
Following the Hart House Vision, funding priorities* for Good Ideas include:
- Activities or projects that enhance or have a significant impact on student life on campus
- Activities or projects that create spaces for self-knowledge and/or self-expression
- Activities or projects open to all students / that benefit all students
- Activities that promote diversity, collaboration and interaction between student groups, departments, faculties and colleges
- reviewing student group proposals
