Course Release Policy
Externally funded projects can require faculty to expend effort above and beyond their coursework. Faculty can request a course release to modify their workload. For more information, view the course release policy.
Gift Card Compensation Policy
If the individual receiving a gift card is an employee, we will need to capture and provide their name, employee number, dollar amount of the gift card and date. It is a taxable event regardless of the amount. Additionally, they must fill out the gift card compensation form for employees.
If the individual receiving a gift card is not an employee, we will need to capture and provide their name, dollar amount of the gift card, date, and if the amount they receive for the entire calendar year is over $600, they must complete a Form W-9 and a gift card compensation form for non-employees.
