ELPS Travel Instructions

Faculty and graduate student travel will be supported by both departmental and college funds.  Requests for support will originate in the departments and are then forwarded to the Dean’s Office for matching consideration.  Details for this process are outlined on the Travel Policies website for the College of Education Health and Human Sciences at http://cehhs.utk.edu/college/CEHHS-travel.html.  Procedural questions are always welcome. Request forms for both faculty and graduate student support are available through the links that follow or from the specific programs:

Procedures:

Among many details in the policy, a key expectation is “prior approval.”  Appropriate and timely reimbursement is dependent upon filing a travel request and a request for funds in support of appropriate incurred expenses prior to the expected travel.  For efficient paper flow it is important to seek authorization for travel at least two weeks in advance.

  1. Complete a Faculty Travel Support Request Form or Graduate Student Travel Support Request Form and give to Vikki Fussell or Janie Young at least 2 weeks prior to travel. You should also include your letter of acceptance and any other information/documentation relating to the trip. Per diem rates can be obtained from Vikki or Janie.
  2. Once your travel and funding have been approved, Vikki or Janie will provide an envelope with a Travel Worksheet/Checklist and put it in your box. This checklist should be completed and returned to Vikki or Janie immediately after travel along with all original receipts and documents.
