Travel can be a integral part of the faculty experience for research, professional development, networking, and presentation of scholarly and creative works. Faculty are governed by University Travel Policies and Procedures (5.3, Policies and Procedures, Section 5 – Finance Policies), as well as faculty-specific travel policies. Please read below for additional policies and resources.

School of Music
Full-time faculty in the School of Music should make requests for travel for the academic year by submitting the Faculty Travel Request to the dean's office.
Faculty Travel to Stetson Locations
Full-time faculty who travel to teach at a Stetson campus or satellite center that is not their appointed primary location may be eligible to receive a travel stipend to ensure that travel expenses incurred are sufficiently compensated. For more information, please review the supplement to the Stetson Travel Policy: Faculty Travel to Stetson Locations.
In some disciplines, it is customary to attend a professional convention or conference to interview candidates for a position. Faculty traveling in conjunction with recruitment efforts should consult the Faculty Recruiting Guidelines for details on what travel may be covered by the Office of Academic Affairs.
