Regular out-of-class interaction enhances the collegiate experience by allowing students to develop meaningful relationships with adults who play significant roles in their lives at the university.
With this in mind, President Michael F. Adams created a fund to be used in support of voluntary out-of-class gatherings hosted by faculty, preferably in their home.
The following guidelines are to be followed where financial support is to be provided:

It is recognized that with the diversity of educational offerings provided by the University of Georgia there may be a need to modify the guidelines to meet special circumstances. Inquiries as to possible exceptions should be addressed to Amanda Patterson, Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs, 306 Memorial Hall prior to incurring expenses.
An expense report should be completed after the gathering to indicate attendance and amount requested for reimbursement. Itemized receipts and list of participants must be attached to support the expenditures. Please do not purchase personal items in the same transaction as reimbursable items.
