Excursions (day trips) are trips up to 200 miles from campus, returning the same day.
For group travel, the faculty/staff trip leader or sponsor should arrange for transportation using a Lawrence fleet vehicle, rental van, or bus as described in the vehicle use policy. All drivers must be authorized drivers and must conform to the requirements of the vehicle use policy concerning age, permissible roads and speeds, and required rest periods.
Prior to departure, the trip leader or sponsor should send an email to StudentTravel@lawrence.edu with the following trip information:
This email is to inform you that GROUP/CLASS NAME will be off campus engaging in ACTIVITY at LOCATION NAME AND ADDRESS from START TIME to END TIME on DAY, MONTH, DATE. COORDINATOR NAME is the trip coordinator and can be reached at PHONE NUMBER. The driver(s) are DRIVER NAMES and can be reached at DRIVER PHONE NUMBERS. Students participating are LIST OF STUDENT NAMES.
When departing, a final roster should be dropped in the drop box at the Wriston turnaround so that Campus Safety has current information about students who are off campus.
Individual students who wish to use a fleet vehicle for an academic excursion must receive approval from the Associate Dean of the Faculty.
