Department Travel Policy
Effective August 23, 2018 (provided funding available)
The Department will match funds with the CAHSS Dean up to $1,200 per fiscal year (July 1-June 30) to support travel to professional conferences or workshops where the faculty member is presenting or serving as a discussant, moderator, or chair of a panel or presenting a poster, pending available departmental funds. Consistent with the Dean’s policy, faculty members on sabbatical are eligible for travel support and up to two trips per year may be supported.
The Department also will match the Dean’s contribution for travel expenses for meetings in support of professional service (e.g., as an officer in a professional association, as an editor for a professional journal), up to $500.
To request funds faculty should complete the CAHSS travel request form available on the CAHSS Dean’s website and submit to the Department designee for Departmental approval and processing. Departmental and University travel policies must be followed in arranging travel.
