School of Liberal Arts Travel Guidelines

Effective: 9/01/2020

This new Chrome River module (in ONE) contains the Pre-Approval (PA) report which will be required for all university-sponsored travel going forward.

These Pre-Approvals support the university's Duty of Care responsibility by making leaders aware of travelers' locations before and during a trip, which is critical during the pandemic. Additionally, Pre-Approved expenses can be imported to expense reports in seconds, eliminating redundant entries and saving time by auto filling many fields. Pre-Approval also allows approvers to understand the financial scope of a planned trip before reservations are made.

Additionally, two new documents covering these topics are available:

We are also developing a short training video for Executive Approvers which will be available soon.
