Any group of students interested in traveling off campus as representatives of the University must first receive approval for the trip from the Dean of Students or his designate. Once approved, the group leader must provide the following information to the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development for each student traveling:
Name of student traveling
Local contact information
Emergency contact information
Dates and Times of the trip
Means of transportation
Contact person/phone number at destination
Chaperone Name and Contact Information
It may be necessary, as determined by the Dean of Students or his designate, for the group to be accompanied by a Fordham University chaperone. Chaperones are staff members of the Division of Student Affairs, faculty members or other administrators approved as trip chaperones by the Assistant Dean or Director of Student Leadership and Community Development and/or the Dean of Students.
All travel arrangements must be arranged through the Assistant Director for Student Organizations and Programming in the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development. Enterprise car rental requests must be made at least five business days in advance of travel, and bus rental requests must be made at least three weeks in advance of travel.
All students traveling are expected to abide by the Fordham University policies as published in the Student Handbook, as well as the travel policies for the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development for each campus. (For additional information regarding student travel, refer to the Student Activities Budget Committee section of this Handbook.)
