UIndy working on crediting students for meal plans, financial losses

The University of Indianapolis is currently trying to figure out how to credit student’s accounts for meal plans and university-sponsored travel, wherever it’s possible, University President Robert Manuel announced in an update to faculty and staff that was posted on UIndy’s coronavirus webpage on March 18. He said that it is a complicated process because UIndy has to understand what financial packages students have and what federal and state compliance regulations would govern the university’s decisions. 

Jason Dudich, vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer, and Kory Vitangeli, vice president for student and campus affairs and dean of students, have been tasked with this figuring out the process, Manuel said. Dudich and Vitangeli will inform the UIndy community of the answer when they figure it out, he said.

Vice President for Advancement Chris Molloy is working on a fundraising effort with alumni to help raise money to cover some of the costs that were lost by students who had international travel postponed, Manuel said. This fund will also help students who are in need of emergency funds, due to losing a job, lack of work or general financial hardship.
