From time to time Furman University serves as cooperating institution or assisting agency relative to various governmental or private grants. Individual administrators and faculty act as consultants in such cases, and such persons also serve on visiting committees for accrediting associations.

2. In the case of Furman's serving as a cooperating institution or assisting agency, and when in such case an honorarium is provided for consultation services, one-half of the honorarium will be retained by the consultant and the other half will go into the appropriate Furman budget.
