Unless otherwise arranged with the Provost, all continuing full-time faculty are eligible for up to $1,800 in travel funding in support of conference or professional development participation. Travel to conferences at which the faculty member presents a paper or plays an official role is fully reimbursable. Otherwise, expenses are reimbursable at two-thirds of the actual cost. The “two-thirds funding rule” does not apply if travel is supported by an Academic Support Committee grant or start-up funds.
When travel expenses are to be paid using the Faculty Travel budget, Academic Support Committee grants, or start-up funds, faculty should complete the online Faculty Travel Authorization Form before traveling to ensure that expenses will be reimbursed. After travel is complete, requests for reimbursement should be submitted to the Director of Faculty Development, Rachel Weir, at Box #29 using the Travel/Entertainment Report, which can be found on the Forms page. Instructions for completing the Travel/Entertainment Report can also be found on that page.
Questions about travel funding should be directed to the Director of Faculty Development, Rachel Weir (firstname.lastname@example.org).
