Interim Faculty Policy for International Travel
The Academic Affairs Leadership Team has reviewed the proposed SJU International Travel Policy and endorses the approval of the policy as it applies to students, staff, and faculty who travel abroad with students participating in SJU-sponsored courses.  However, in that international travel may be a requisite portion of faculty research and scholarship, the policy, as it applies to individual faculty travel, should be reviewed by the university governance process.  While the governance process is reviewing the mandate, the Academic Affairs Leadership Team endorses the following interim policy:

All faculty traveling abroad, regardless of destination, must register with the Center for International Programs (using the steps provided below).  In the event that travel in support of faculty research and scholarship is to a country or region with a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning, the college Dean, Provost, and International Travel Oversight Committee must be informed, and final approval to travel to this country or region must be given by the Provost.  If approved, the faculty member will be required to "e-sign" a travel waiver related to the destination (available through the registration process).

Before you begin the registration process, please note the following:

•If you are a faculty member leading a student, academic program that is working with the CIP office, you do not need to register here. Instead, please visit the Faculty Proposals page of our website or contact the Assistant Director, Mary Anne Kucserik: 610-660-3477,  If you are planning non-academic travel with any number of Saint Joseph's University students (undergraduate or graduate), please apply through the Group Travel Request page.
•University-sponsored travel must be booked through the University Travel Office or Concur, the preferred on-line booking tool.  Air and rail reservations booked outside of the Travel office will not be reimbursed, per the SJU Travel and Business Expense Policy.
Why Is Registration Important?
Faculty travel registration in the system allows the CIP and the University the ability to provide you with the necessary health and safety support, including travel assistance information and other pre-departure resources.  Additionally, in the unlikely event of an emergency, the CIP will be able to quickly coordinate response and assistance with the relevant departments.
