We have been fielding a number of questions regarding international travel. Below is guidance during the current suspension and for when the suspension is lifted:
“Would I be invited to participate in this international work/program if I were not a BSU faculty member or staff member?”
Ball State University policies and procedures for international travel include:
When the suspension is lifted at some future date, travelers are to return to following BSU international travel policies and procedures, including registration in Terra Dotta, for all of the above categories. These are the same categories that were in place pre-pandemic.
An employee can request an exception from the President, but exceptions will only be granted in rare circumstances. Please, contact me for details on how to submit such a request.
I welcome addressing your questions and concerns as we continue to work with you in the pursuit of your important work within the international arena.
My best to you,
Susan McDowell, Ph.D.Vice Provost for ResearchProfessor of BiologyPhone: 765-285-8846
