New Orleans Partner Opportunities Program


Undergraduate Activities Fund


Each semester, the Provost's Office administers the Undergraduate Activities Fund, which is designed to encourage faculty-student interactions outside of the normal classroom setting.

Only classes at the 4000-level and below will qualify for funds. TIDES courses and Independent Studies are not eligible for funding.  Cross-listed courses are counted as one course and therefore only eligible for a maximum of $150.

Each class is allotted up to $150 for an activity. These activities may include:

  • A film screening and dinner at a professor's home;
  • A swamp tour for an ecology class; or
  • A field trip to examine local architecture for a design class.

Undergraduate Activities Fund Memo to Faculty for Fall 2017


Thank you for your interest in the Undergraduate Activities Fund. We are no longer accepting requests for Fall 2017. Please check back in early January for the Spring semester.

Undergraduate Activities Fund Reimbursement Form

(Updated 08/28/17).  This form is only used when requesting reimbursement for your expenses.  This is NOT the way to request funds for the semester.)

Please note--while the Provost's Office will create expense reports for reimbursement in the Concur system on behalf of the faculty member, the faculty member is responsible for submitting his/her expense reports in Concur so that the report reaches the Accounts Payable Office.  Faculty who submit their paperwork on time to the Provost's Office but do not also submit the corresponding Concur expense report in a timely fashion may not be reimbursed, as per university policy on the timeliness of submitting reimbursements.
