Authorization for Travel
University policies concerning travel are available from the Office of Business and Financial Services. Unit executive officers have the authority to grant permission for their faculty and staff to travel.
The dean is responsible for authorizing travel for unit executive officers and staff members who report directly to the dean. Permission is required in advance. Approval can be sought through an email message that includes the purpose of the trip, dates, and proposed financing. Requests for approval for vacation travel should include the dates and contact information (phone number or email address).
To address concerns about the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff during international travel, particularly in areas that have travel warnings issued by the U.S. State Department, the campus has adopted a policy on international travel that has been incorporated into the Campus Administrative Manual. University employees should also consult the guidelines for foreign travel compiled by the Office of Business and Financial Services.
