Faculty Entertaining Students Program
Academic departmental budgets receive a special annual allocation to subsidize faculty-student interaction outside the classroom. These funds are intended to encourage faculty members and departments to think creatively about ways to engage with students outside the classroom in meaningful ways.
Departmental budgets are generally allocated as $80/term/faculty member in expense code 5997; the department may choose to commingle these funds/events in whatever way creates the most meaningful event(s) for their student/faculty interactions. The department is responsible for not exceeding their total budget in 5997. Overages will be charged against other departmental funds at the end of the fiscal year.
These funds are not fungible; they cannot be used for other purposes in the department, and will not be included in the carryover at the end of the fiscal year.
