COVID Revised Bingham Form: The purpose of the Bingham Entertainment Fund is to encourage faculty and staff to entertain students at their homes in an effort to extend hospitality beyond the campus. To assist in doing so, reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses for food purchased to entertain students in faculty or staff homes is available through an endowed fund and will be processed upon receipt of appropriate documentation (see form) as long as the funds last.

This form has been updated for use during the pandemic. For more information, contact Sarah Broomfield.
