CLASS SUPPLIES / The University requires that all class supply purchases be made through the department. Do not use a personal credit card for classroom purchases, we are not able to provide reimbursement.

HONORARIUM PAYMENTS / If you plan to invite a guest to your class and wish to provide an honorarium, submit their name to Itzel Lopez prior to the promise of payment. Before you extend an invitation and schedule a visit, we need two weeks of payment research/verification time to confirm that your guest is considered payment-eligible by the University. Please note that payments to foreign nationals, which are dependent on visa status, are not always possible. Please alert your guest to the School’s paperwork request and the need for prompt form completion necessary for payment. 
 


FACULTY REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Report of Non-University Activities (RNUA) must be filed each September. The form and instructions can be found at myDisclosures. This reporting process is not intended to discourage non-University income-generating activities—it is recognized that most of these activities are consistent with, and often beneficial to, your University role. The reporting and approval procedures assist in ensuring that external activities are compatible with University obligations. The policy on Conflict of Commitment and Interest applies to all faculty and academic staff.

Statement of Economic Interests must be filed if you hold a University P-(purchasing) or T-(travel) card. The Illinois Secretary of State will mail the statement to your home address on file with the University, and will send reminders to employees who have not yet filed. Blank forms are available via University Ethics and Compliance Office.

Online Ethics Training must be completed each Fall semester. Notification and log-in details will be emailed.

Online Sexual Misconduct Training must be completed each Spring semester. Notification and log-in details will be emailed.

Faculty Activity Report (FAR) must be submitted annually by all full-time faculty at My Activities. This report is used to record and share accomplishments, compile reporting data on faculty activities, and potentially determine merit-based salary increases.
