What constitutes University sponsorship?

WWU is committed to reviewing, approving, and supporting University-sponsored travel which furthers its mission and core values. Those coordinating travel are responsible for understanding and following these policies and procedures. While on University-sponsored travel, the WWU Governance Handbook, Staff Employee Handbook, and Student Handbook will be in effect.

First complete and submit an International Travel Request Application. Travel must be authorized by the Travel Proposal Committee prior to any advertising, fund raising, or making travel arrangements. Requests should be submitted a minimum of two months prior to the proposed departure date.
