Guidelines for Field Trips


The following guidelines apply to trips conducted under the auspices of those such as class field trips, student retreats, off-campus social activities of a University student organization, and similar areas within which the University has responsibility:

1. Trips must be properly approved in advance.  For academic areas, this includes prior approval by the School Dean and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.  For non-academic areas, this includes prior approval by the sponsor of the group and the Executive Director of Facilities and Safety.

2. A faculty member or faculty/administrative staff sponsor must be present.

3. When student cars are involved, it must be established that there is proper automobile insurance.

4. A list of those going on the trip must be filed in the Academic Affairs Office prior to departure.

5. Field trips that cause students to miss classes will normally be limited to one trip per course per semester.  The Vice President for Academic Affairs must approve any exceptions.  When a non-academic field trip will cause students to miss classes, the same limit applies and must be approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
