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 college’s campus. Some of these activities may be directly related to an individual’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.
