Faculty Absence and Travel Policies

Faculty members who will be absent from campus for professional or personal reasons must submit a Request for Absence Form and be approved by the Chair in advance of travel. Arrangements for any classes to be missed during the absence must be addressed to the satisfaction of the Chair before approval will be granted.

Attendance at professional meetings is encouraged and approved travel expenses incurred in attending such meetings will be reimbursed when approved by the chair and Dean prior to travel according to the University's travel policies and are subject to the availability of Department funds.
