For the academic year, faculty may request a maximum of $1,200.
NOTE: This amount is lower than in prior years, though it is - as in prior years - based on the assumption that not all faculty request travel funds. It may be necessary, once all requests are processed, to lower the cap. Requests will be reviewed and funds will be disbursed by the dean’s office into departmental budgets. Once the funds have been disbursed, travel funds are under the discretion and authority of the department chair. Unused funds are returned to the University at the end of the fiscal year.
Each faculty member can request up to $1,200 in support. Nothing in excess of this amount will be allotted.
Faculty members should strive to economize whenever possible. Requests for reimbursement for expenses deemed excessive, unnecessary, or frivolous will be denied. Travel supported through endowment funds or through other, non-departmental programs will be administered by the person administering the program or fund. The dean may take into consideration when allocating professional travel monies whether an individual faculty member has access to non-departmental funds.
Each faculty member should submit his or her request individually. If you are requesting funds for more than one conference, please provide details for each and indicate the total amount in each category (grand total not to exceed $1,200). Travel requests are due to the CAS Dean's Office by September 3.
