In the normal course of college-related life, students engage in academic work or participate in a wide range of activities that take place at locations away from the collegeâ€™s campus. Some of these activities may be directly related to an individualâ€™s formal academic study, program or research. Other activities, such as athletics team travel and recreational and social events organized or sponsored by the college, relate to the out-of-classroom experiences of students.
To address the safety and well-being of college members participating in such activities, the Off-Campus Student Travel and Activities Policy was developed. The accompanying procedures and forms are designed to assist in the planning and safe execution of all off-campus activities. Examples of activities covered under this policy are:
- Travel study trips
- Field trips (during or outside of regular class time)
- Team sports
- Conference/festival attendance
- Exchange programs
If you are unsure about whether this policy applies to a specific activity, please consult your Sector Dean or the Director of Student Services.
