The Provost's signature is required for all out-of-state travel as well as when Faculty Development funding is requested.
Faculty Development Travel Funds, provided through the Office of the Provost, are available to all full-time faculty members who present a paper or poster at a conference, actively participate in a workshop as a leader or panelist, or hold an office in an organization sponsoring a conference.
Faculty Development monies are provided at the discretion of the Provost after college and/or department funding has been exhausted. Supporting documentation must be attached when requesting funding as indicated on the Travel Request Authorization form.
Effective for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, Faculty Development Travel funding may provide each full-time faculty member:
$500 for Domestic Trips
$700 for Non-Contiguous US International Trips
Maximum Yearly Allowance of $1200
Travel regulations are to be reviewed prior to traveling, especially International travel policies and procedures for Study Abroad involving student programs/groups.
All faculty must complete their Travel Reimbursement form within 60 days following the last travel day of each specific travel date. Claims submitted after 60 days must be resubmitted to the financial manager and the Office of the Provost for approval. Attach complete documentation verifying travel expenses prior to forwarding to the Office of the Provost.
Part-time faculty are eligible for a maximum annual award of $500 to support professional development travel. These funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. In order to qualify, part-time faculty must follow the same guidelines as those for the full-time faculty as mentioned above.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Review all travel policies regarding subsistence allowance for per diem and incidental expenses here.
