Inviting Visitors for Research (More than 1 week)
If you plan to invite a student or faculty from another university to spend time in your lab to conduct research (whether paid or not), prior to engaging in any conversation with the visitor, you must complete the Request to Host a Visitor Form located in the Receiving and Hosting Visitors folder on the CoE’s CyPoint site (you will need to login with your NETID and password). The department and college review all requests to ensure that ISU policies are not violated regarding export of research prior to authorizing any invitation. Direct your questions to Sara.
Faculty Salary Adjustments – salary on grants, summer salary, buy-outs
If you need to pay yourself from a grant/contract account, or need to add summer months, please complete the Request for Salary Additions and Adjustments form and submit to Sara in the Main Office. Please note, salary will NOT be processed for FULL TIME on any grant for any specific period longer than one week, i.e., you can get paid from grant A, Jun 1-5; but you CANNOT get paid from Jun 1-15 (it will be ½ month spread over Jun 1-30). This keeps us within the legal guidelines for grants and allows you to spend time on other things such as writing additional grants. Also, for NON-buyout situations, you can request to be paid off a grant during the academic year and use your 704 funds to pay yourself in the summer – BUT – it must be within the same fiscal year (NO crossing fiscal years – use it or lose it). For buyouts, you will not get your 704 funds in the summer. If you have any questions, please see Sara in the Main Office.
Student Travel Support Requests
As a reminder, the GPSS provides travel support to graduate students. Please ask your students to complete the Request for Graduate College Professional Advancement Grant (PAG) Form and submit directly to the Graduate College. In addition, the department offers Professional Development Support as well. This year, we will continue to support as much as $500 for presenters at top conferences. Please ask your students to complete the ECpE Professional Development Support (PDS) Request Form and submit to Sara K Harris. Upon their return, please ask your students to complete and submit to Sammy the ECpE Travel Reimbursement Form (under ECpE Department Leave, Travel, Grant, and Reimbursement Forms) along with all original detailed receipts.
