New No Cost Insurance Available for Faculty/Staff Traveling Internationally
SUNY Central came up with a new (no cost) insurance package for all faculty/staff for work-related international travel. SUNY Central asked all campuses to appoint a contact person for the program that faculty/staff could contact before and during travel should the need arise. President Horvath asked me to be that contact person.
In order to provide faculty/staff with this information, I need to know who is traveling. Since everyone has to fill out a regular travel authorization form that is signed by chair (regardless of who is funding travel), it seemed to make the most sense for department secretaries to let me know who is traveling internationally. That is why they were sent the simple additional form for international travel. This form is available on the right side of this web site.
