UDIST Faculty Resources

Last updated on Aug 04, 2022

Current Faculty


Prior to the beginning of the semester, UDIST instructors submit a proposed budget to the UDIST chair and program manager. Course budget proposals must provide specific budget line items and expenses. Any items that need to be purchased should be done as a Purchase Requisition (not as expense reimbursement) and submitted to the UDIST program manager as soon as possible. Instructors should not spend money out of pocket, there is no guarantee it can be reimbursed. Approved studio materials can be charged to the Associate Provost budget, simply have the appropriate studio manager forward costs to the UDIST program manager.

Speaker Fees and Honoraria

Please submit Honoraria requests at least two days before the speaker visit. Additionally, send the UDIST program manager a copy of the visitor's W9.

Field Trips

Please submit financial requests for field trips (such as museum visits, concerts, etc) to the UDIST program manager at least two weeks before the date of visit. In your request please include

  • a copy (email or PDF) of confirmation from the institution which includes
  • the time and date of your visit,
  • the number of students attending the field trip,
  • and the cost per student

If faculty are taking students on a field trip as part of the normal course expectations for a class students are currently enrolled in, no liability forms are required. These trips may occur outside of a class' regular meeting time. The Off Campus Activity Authorization Form is required for any voluntary trips unrelated to specific course requirements. Please download and complete both pages of the form and submit it to Academic Affairs no less than two days prior to the planned event.
