» Travel & Transportation - International and Domestic

Travel and transportation is a basic element of everyday life. For most travel, we don’t give it a second thought. But there are a wide range of risk associated with any travel, ranging from the risk of over-the-road travel and transportation, to risks associated with destinations that are unfamiliar to traveling parties. 

Students, staff and faculty often travel locally, ranging from voluntary participation in student activities to volunteer service to community organization to faculty-led field trips. More distance transportation can include car, van or bus travel, at time connected with academic programs.

Risk Management should be consulted with questions regarding travel practices, or when there are special needs such as outside contracts with bus or other transportation providers.

Bus, Shuttle and Limo Providers

Many University events that are held off-campus are best serviced by the arrangement of qualified providers of transportation services.  This can range from limousine to shuttle to bus transportation.   These services are arranged under written contract, coordinated through the Risk Management and Legal Affairs offices.  The Risk Management office has established certain minimum required levels of insurance, and specific conditions associated with written evidence, or Certificates of Insurance.  For more information and for a list of transportation services providers who have provided evidence of those limits, please read our requirements.

For international travel, those risks are compounded. Risk Management Services and the Chapman University Center for Global Education can often be of assistance. All persons traveling internationally in connection with University programs must register their international travel by way of the University’s International Travel Assistance and Assistance Enrollment Form.
