Chairpersons’ and Directors’ Travel Fund in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
To inform chairpersons and directors in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences of the procedures for the Chairpersons’ and Directors’ Travel Fund.
Chairpersons and Directors in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
The College provides travel funding for chairpersons and directors that is separate from any funding the chairperson/director may receive from the College’s general faculty travel funding. Typically, the $1,000 allocation is for attendance at a professional association meeting. Although the funds are not limited to this purpose, they can only be used for travel.
These funds are administered through the College Dean’s Office. To access these funds, please have the department SSC contact person for travel complete a Travel Request form and submit an electronic copy to the College Dean’s Office SSC contact person at least two weeks prior to the start of the travel. Once the trip is completed, please submit a fully completed Travel Expense Detail form along with original itemized receipts to the department SSC contact. The travel fund is “state” funding, so all University and State rules and regulations must be followed. For further details, please refer to the university travel hendbook at the Procurement Services office’s travel information page.
