Undergraduate Activities Fund

04/03/2012

Each semester, the Provost's Office administers the Undergraduate Activities Fund, which is designed to encourage faculty-student interactions outside of the normal classroom setting.

Change for the 2014-15 Academic Year: only classes at the 4000-level and below will qualify for funds. TIDES courses and Independent Studies are not eligible for funding.  Cross-listed courses are counted as one course and therefore only eligible for a maximum of $150.

Each class is allotted up to $150 for an activity. These activities may include:

  • A salsa dance lesson for a Spanish class;
  • A swamp tour for an ecology class; or
  • A field trip to examine local architecture for a design class.

Undergraduate Activities Fund Reimbursement Form for Fall 2014

(Updated 08/27/2014)

Please note--while the Provost's Office will create expense reports for reimbursement in the Concur system on behalf of the faculty member, the faculty member is responsible for submitting his/her expense reports in Concur so that the report reaches the Accounts Payable Office.  Faculty who submit their paperwork on time to the Provost's Office but do not also submit the corresponding Concur expense report in a timely fashion may not be reimbursed, as per university policy on the timeliness of submitting reimbursements.
