The faculty of the University has affirmed that field trips shall be sanctioned as a feature of the instructional program.
Such trips should be anticipated and included in the catalogue description of the related course.
Requests for trips not included in the appropriate catalogue descriptions will be approved only upon careful evaluation and subjects to the procedures outlined below.
Examples of such field trips would be
- a criminal justice class visiting the Stanley Correctional Institution or
- a biology class traveling to Carson Park to sample pond water.
Scheduled events where students represent the University, as in intercollegiate sports or forensic activities, are handled in the same manner as course-related trips.
Events such as these might include a group of students traveling to the US System Symposium for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity.
