Legislative intent   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

It is the intent of the Legislature that segments maximize the use of existing resources to implement the Human Corps. This responsibility includes seeking the resources of the private and independent sectors, philanthropies, and the federal government to supplement state support for Human Corps programs. The Legislature intends that the funds appropriated for purposes of this chapter to the Regents of the University of California and the Trustees of the California State University be used to offset some of the costs of developing the Human Corps. The segmental and campus Human Corps Task Forces shall jointly determine how those funds are used. It is the further intent of the Legislature that funds be allocated competitively for programs and not on a pro rata basis for each campus. Preference in funding should be given to strengthen and expand exemplary efforts to implement the Human Corps and to stimulate new efforts on campuses where the establishment of student community service programs has been limited.

Campuses may develop numerous approaches to implement the Human Corps on each campus. Activities eligible for funding may include a wide variety of incentives for student participation such as:

(a) Recognition programs.

(b) Fellowships.

(c) Awareness programs.

(d) Periodic conferences for students and community organizations.

(e) Transportation costs.

(f) Matching grants.

(g) Intersegmental programs.
