Staff Vollum Funds for Fall 2018 Semester

Each semester, Vollum Funds are available to provide financial assistance to staff members who wish to take students out for a meal or an event. The spirit of the program focuses on facilitating social interaction between students and staff in ways that clearly distinguish the activity from curricular activities.

Funds Cover:

  • Hosting meals for students on or off campus

  • Attending plays, movies, museums, or for recreational activities

  • Fees for using Reed vans or taking Tri-Met, and fuel costs for other vehicles

Funds may not be used for alcoholic beverages or gifts.

Eligibility and Schedule:

Staff members working >.5 FTE are entitled to $100 each semester, and staff <=.5 FTE to $50 each semester.

Fall semester funds may be used July 1 through the day before Spring semester classes begin.

Unused funds do not roll over. Staff may also combine their funds with those of other staff members for larger events.


A receipt must accompany your request for reimbursement. If you use cash or a personal card, please submit receipts to Megan Simón in Eliot 218, or via email at If a pCard was used to make the purchase, please send an email to Megan ( for the accounting information to use when reconciling your card. Her printed email authorization needs to be included in the pCard envelope as audit support.

For more information, contact Megan Simón.
