Study-travel can be an important ingredient in a studentÃ¢€™s academic experience. Its effectiveness is, however, diminished by lack of planning and/or by duplication of effort in another department. The following policy statement has been approved and should be followed as a faculty member develops plans.
These guidelines are applicable to learning experiences which will generally include: travel for course credit, deputations, field trips, alumni tours, travel planned by interest groups and/or clubs, summer term travel, and continuing education travel.
Persons planning any off-campus travel, including field trips for a class, must send notification of the event (including a list of participants) to the Provost and the Dean of the Faculty.
Sponsoring faculty are required to make sure that all necessary documents (including, without limitation, permission and disclaimer documents) have all necessary signatures (including any required student signatures) before any travel begins.
