Instructionally Related Activities (IRA)


Instructionally Related Activities, per CSU Educational Code 86230, are defined as “those activities and laboratory experiences which are at least partially sponsored by an academic discipline or department and which are, in the judgement of the president…integrally related to its formal instructional offerings.”

The Instructionally Related Activities Fee was established to provide support for essential educational experiences and activities that aid and supplement the fundamental educational mission of the institution.  These guidelines should be kept in mind when preparing the Request for Funds.

If you are interested in requesting funds for Fall 2020–Spring 2021, please access the documents by clicking on the link titled, IRA Guidelines and Request Form.


The deadline to submit IRA proposals has been extended to Friday, April 3, 2020 at 12:00 pm. Please see the link to the timeline ABOVE for full details.
