This program provides a unique opportunity for SAE Faculty Advisors and Students to invite an industry lecturer to interact with students and faculty on campus. Please note that this benefit is for SAE Chapters only (chapters and CDS teams are different entities). Don’t have a chapter? Not sure if you have one? Contact Corey Dillon for more information.
SAE, through the Teetor Awards Fund, covers the lecturer's travel expenses. The lecturer's employer covers the lecturer's time away from the office, and sometimes will also sponsor the lecturer’s travel expenses. The lecturer is responsible for making his or her own travel arrangements; a lecturer may ask for assistance in locating a hotel near campus and determining the best mode of transportation to and from the airport and to campus. As a host, you are not required to make reservations for the lecturer. Any assistance, such as providing transportation for the lecturer to the hotel or providing a parking spot on campus, would be appreciated but not mandatory. Hosting meals before or after a lecture or having snacks available during the lecture is at your discretion. SAE covers expenses of the lecturer's travel but does not cover these additional optional food and beverage items.
