    Budgetary Comments: Last month, $10,920 was moved into the Title III budget to pay for the learning coaches in the Humanities lab. This amount reflected the entirety of the adjuncts salary and not the hours spent in the lab. However, this mistake was quickly corrected. An amount of $2,276 this month reflects the learning coaches expenses for Oct, Nov and Dec 2012 as well as Feb 2013. Expenditures:

    Personnel and Benefits expenses cover the Title III supported employees. Travel: Conference registration fees, travel costs Supplies: Office supplies for grant staff, copies and phone charges Other: Service-learning project support
