The “Popcorn Fund” was established to encourage faculty members to provide refreshments for students (especially freshmen) outside of class as a means of enhancing collegial relationships and improving student retention. To keep the costs within budget limitations, faculty members should limit their entertaining to one time per class per semester. To request reimbursement, the faculty member should complete a Special Expense - Campus Funded Event - Payment Request form which is available on the Accounting Services website. No receipts are required. The completed form should be sent to the Accounting Services Office, US - 103. Upon approval, reimbursement checks will be sent to the faculty’s on-campus mailbox or through direct deposit if requested. The maximum reimbursement is established each year based on funds available and anticipated participation. The current maximum is $15.00 per class section.
