Reinventing Undergraduate Education, The Boyer Commission
Research universities were the target audience for this report of the National Commission on Educating Undergraduates when they convened in 1995 under the auspices of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Nonetheless, this report provides much food for thought among our nation's predominantly undergraduate institutions.
Organizations Promoting University-Based Research
Per Diem Rates
This is a link to the per diem travel rates established by the General Services Administration for use by federal government employees. We have added this link in an effort to provide assistance budgeting travel costs on your sponsored project grant applications. These costs do not represent limitations on cost reimbursement to Hofstra University employees; rather, this information is provided as guidance in preparing proposal budgets.
Xe.com The Universal Currency Converter
Currency Exchange Calculators can be found on many websites, providing the most common exchanges (Euro-U.S. Dollar) as well as some of the more obscure (from the Albanian Lek to the Zambian Kwacha). Xe.com is one of the more popular and easy-to-use Exchange Rate Calculators. It is provided at this site for your convenience when preparing cost projections and/or travel expenses and reimbursement reports on grants.
Videotape Series: "Protecting Human Subjects"
