Faculty Firesides

Faculty Firesides bring faculty and undergraduate students together to encourage interaction and extend academic dialogue beyond the classroom. The program provides funds to faculty to help offset the cost of hosting an informal gathering.

The following guidelines apply to Faculty Firesides:

  • Reimbursement is $3.75 per student per event.
  • There is a $100 maximum per faculty member per term.
  • Faculty Firesides are intended for undergraduate students enrolled in any course taught by the sponsoring faculty member.
  • Reimbursements are issued to faculty only.
  • Receipts are required for reimbursement of expenses.
  • Alcoholic beverages may not be served at Faculty Firesides.
  • FIG faculty with Rippey Innovative Teaching Awards have access to funds for out-of-class activities and are therefore expected to use those funds rather than the Faculty Firesides funds.
