Policy

On March 17, 2008, members of the campus Administrative Council were informed that, due to the current systemwide budget deficit, Chancellor Reed has declared that campus presidents must approve all international professional travel. In addition, campus individuals who receive required approval to travel internationally must secure foreign travel insurance coverage by contacting the Human Resources Department.

To achieve compliance with these directives, individuals wishing to travel internationally must follow the process outlined below:

Approval process

Complete an "International Professional Travel Request/Authorization" form (available from Human Resources) and secure approval signatures from:

  • Department Chair
  • College Dean -- (Once approval is secured, the Dean will request insurance from Human Resources.)
  • Provost or applicable Division Vice President
  • President

Foreign travel insurance

  • The College Dean will submit the approved form to the Assistant Vice President for Human Resources/Risk Management normally thirty (30) days prior to date of travel.
  • The cost of foreign travel insurance is to be paid as a cost of business travel and will be billed to the department.

Additional information regarding CSUSB international professional travel requirements is available from the Human Resources Department.
