Faculty in LSA who are in good standing and are making a presentation at a conference should use their individual RESIN (BFI or IDCR). If the faculty member does not have funds available to them they should request funds from their home department. The conference topic should be in keeping with the faculty member's area of expertise and contribute towards the mission of the department. If additional funds are needed beyond the department's ability to fund, requests will be considered by the College. The department contribution should be at least half of the total requested from the College.
