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.
