22.12. Professional Travel Expenses

The College encourages professional development of faculty resulting from attending meetings of professional societies, seminars, etc. and will provide financial support as funds are available.

Professional travel having prior authorization by the faculty Dean or Division Chair and the Vice President for Academic Affairs, will be reimbursed according to the College's Travel Policy. A Travel Expense Report, available through the Business Office, is required in order to receive reimbursement. Internal Revenue Service regulations are very explicit regarding documentary evidence such as receipts, paid bills, canceled checks, etc., from any expenditure for lodging or travel away from home regardless of the amount.

All Travel Expense Reports of faculty require the signature of the faculty who traveled, his/her Dean or Division Chair and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. See Travel Policy on the College's computer system (J:drive).
