- Establish new accounts to hold IDC (Indirect Cost Distribution) funds and fundraising / special activity income

- Provide training and resources to the campus community regarding corporation policies, procedures and account reporting
- Reconcile and manage accounts
Professional Development/Research Support Accounts
Departmental Discretionary Accounts
Departmental discretionary accounts are generally funded by retained earnings from the corporation’s commercial services operations and are used to provide support for various departments across campus.
Fundraising / Special Activity Accounts
Aid to Instruction
Formal instruction is occasionally supplemented to ensure students receive a quality educational experience. Additional services, activities and laboratory experiences may be needed to add to the instructional offerings. These services may include competitions, sale and licensing of student-produced materials, student projects, and other instruction-related events and products. Conducting those activities may create goods and services that may be sold to students, staff and the general public. Examples of incidental revenues include sales of scientific and literary publications, charges for technical services and sales of products of agricultural divisions.
Other activities and programs reviewed by the university Chief Financial Officer may be assigned to the corporation on a case-by-case basis. These activities will support the mission of the university as stated in the Campus Program Account Agreement and will reimburse the university for the use of facilities or other state resources.
