Dear Academic Affairs colleagues,
Supporting our Horned Frogs on and off campus is our first priority. I have asked the Center for International Studies to assume responsibility for policy and procedures that keep our employees and students safe while traveling both in the United States and internationally.
I write to share the new procedures for faculty, staff and students traveling on behalf of the University, below. For your convenience, this information is also available at:
Travel with Students – Domestic and International
All student travel with at least one overnight stay – domestic or international – must be registered and approved through the Center for International Studies prior to committing funds. This encompasses study abroad, study away, research, conferences, competitions and other TCU business.
- Faculty or staff sponsor must submit travel requests to Student Travel Authorization and Registration on the Center for International Studies website, tcu.edu.
- Reminder, this includes all domestic travel with students, as well as international travel.
DFW Activities with Students
Colleges, schools and units must retain signed indemnification forms (required) from the Provost’s website and maintain a log detailing names, locations, dates and purpose of student activities around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Faculty and Staff Travel – Domestic
Colleges, schools and units must implement an approval process and maintain a log detailing the faculty or staff member’s name, location, date and purpose of travel. This applies to all domestic travel for faculty and staff, without students, on behalf of TCU.
Faculty and Staff Travel – International
All international travel must be registered and approved by the Center for International Studies prior to committing funds. This applies to all international travel for faculty and staff, without students, on behalf of TCU.
- Submit requests to Faculty/Staff Travel Authorization and Registration on the Center for International Studies website, tcu.edu.
As with all things, when planning your travel please keep informed of TCU’s latest health and safety guidelines as issued by the Campus Readiness Task Force and Public Health Committee, at tcu.edu/protect-the-purple.
