Enrichment Funding for Courses
As of 2018, New Brunswick's Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs no longer offers funding for enrichment activities for classes. The Dean's office is now providing such support internally for SC&I classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The process for enrichment funding is:
- An instructor should complete the funding application form (linked here), and submit it to their chair for approval.
- If the department chair approves, he/she should submit the signed form to the Associate Dean for Programs for final approval.
- If the request is approved, the instructor will be notified.
- If students are traveling to the site on their own – no further steps are necessary. In the case of leasing a vehicle to take the class on the trip, the instructor must then submit (a) the signed approval form, (b) a detailed itinerary, and (c) the roster of students in the class to Matt Spaventa in the Office of Risk Management to obtain a waiver form for students to sign. You can contact Matt at email@example.com or (848) 932-3008.
- The instructor should distribute the form to the students in the class and receive back signed forms from all students who will be going on the trip.
- Any student who does not sign the form should not go on the field trip.
- The instructor must email a scan of the signed forms to Matt Spaventa in advance of the trip.
- The instructor should give the original forms to a faculty support staff member. Those forms must be retained by SC&I for seven years.
