Travel Risk Reduction Policy

Each faculty, department or administrative unit is encouraged to minimize its exposure to a catastrophic loss by limiting the number of individuals traveling in the same vehicle (plane, train, automobile, van, bus, boat, etc.) whenever practical to do so. When international travel is involved, special attention should be directed to properly evaluate the exposures of travel using the modes of transportation that are available in the foreign destination.

The President, Vice President for Academic Administration, and Vice President for Financial Administration will avoid traveling simultaneously on the same aircraft.

For the purpose of this policy:

  • The President, Vice Presidents and Associate Vice Presidents form one unit;
  • The Chairs and Deans collectively form one unit.
