Spirit of Travel Regulations
All University travelers seeking reimbursement should incur the lowest reasonable travel expense and should exercise care to avoid impropriety or the appearance of impropriety, including the public perception that a business trip has been taken for personal reasons. If a circumstance arises that is not specifically covered, either the most conservative course within the “spirit” of the travel regulations shall be adopted or consultation for guidance with the Vice President for Finance and Operations should be pursued.
2020 Mileage Reimbursement
The mileage reimbursement has decreased from 58 cents to 57.5 cents per mile effective January 1, 2020.
