How Departments Receive Reimbursement for Travel Funding
Please refer to the University’s travel regulations for information on allowable expenses and required documentation. It is no longer necessary to submit copies of the travel voucher or receipt to the Center for Teaching and Learning. The faculty member’s department office professional should complete the survey at Faculty Travel / Institutional Improvement Grant Reimbursement Request.
Departments will be reimbursed only for funding approved by CTL prior to the date of travel. It is the responsibility of the faculty member to submit the CTL funding application prior to travel.
