Currently, the UNC System’s policy remains that travel is only approved on the authority of the Chancellor. If faculty have travel that is within the existing budgets of your department/area or grant that you feel is critical, please share that with with the subject line of “TRAVEL”. Please describe in the body of the email the specifics of the travel and ONE PARAGRAPH explaining why it is critical, and one line on estimated cost and funding source. Please be sure to include your name and department in the email. If it is to be funded by the department, please ensure that the chair is copied, or more generally that the fund manager for the fund source is copied.

Domestic travel that is deemed essential to one’s work, for which you have identified sufficient funding, and does not involve students will ordinarily be approved. International travel and any travel that might include any students will need to undergo greater scrutiny and may require more details and conversation.
