Travel

As of January 2022 conference, research, internship, community engaged-learning and other travel or trips with students are permitted, following all existing protocols. If a trip involves engaging with others of unknown vaccination status, great care should be taken to remain masked. It is highly recommended that those who traveled and interacted with others be tested within 72 hours of returning to campus.

There are currently no mandated restrictions on domestic travel. Domestic travel does not require prior approval by senior staff. However, there are budget constraints. Resources for travel are not at the levels they were pre-pandemic.

International travel still does require prior approval.

Transporting Students

Transporting students off campus in university vans for field trips is permitted; however, all individuals must wear a mask. We also encourage those who are traveling together in confined spaces be vaccinated. Field trips should not be required if students who do not feel safe traveling together in the confined space of a van are unable to get to the field site with an alternative means of transportation.
