Academic Planning & Budgeting is pleased to announce a final FY 2023 Call for Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) proposals with performance expectations between July 1, 2022, and June 30, 2023.

To ensure your proposal is given priority consideration, please have your IRA application completed by October 9, 2022. This call is targeting planned activity for both Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

The FY 2023 Call will transition the IRA application process from the current open-ended call framework to a once-a-year call. Do note that there will be a second call for proposals with planned activity for the next fiscal year (July 2023 through June 2024) emailed to you this November. Additional information on this transition is forthcoming.

The IRA fee is classified as a mandatory II fee meaning most all student pay this fee. The IRA fee supports a range of events, guest presentations and performances, field trips (when permitted), and other activities that enhance the educational experience at CI.  As all state-supported CI students pay the IRA fee, IRA proposals must be open to all students with opportunities to participate. In addition, all activities are to be promoted across the campus, requiring that promotional materials be available and circulated two weeks prior to the IRA activity. The IRA logo is required to be on all IRA activity/program-related products, fliers, and announcements, including activity/program websites.

Thank you for helping to engage our students with activities that enrich the student learning experience.
