As of July 1, 2021 the university will allow travel in line with updated health and safety requirements as well as a continued focus on fiscal responsibility. When using university funds for travel (e.g., CSA operating funds, sponsorship from a university department), student organizations must follow all university guidelines for travel related to health and safety. This includes following CDC guidelines for mask wearing and physical distancing, avoiding travel to destinations experiencing a surge in cases, and overall carefully considering the need for travel as opposed to virtual participation options. Additional details are available on the Safe and Healthy Buckeyes website at safeandhealthy.osu.edu/travel.
For travel activities not using university funds, we recommend student organizations still follow university guidelines for travel related to health and safety. Student organizations should consult with their organization advisor and/or student org team staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for guidance related to travel. Given the variability in the types of student organization travel – location, duration and purpose of trip – we are happy to consult with you on plans for your specific activity.
Sororities and fraternities affiliated with one of the four governing councils (IFC, MCGC, MPHC or PHA) and sport clubs have additional requirements and processes related to travel. Please contact your SFL staff liaison or email@example.com, or contact Rec Sports staff at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional guidance.
