Beginning in April 2021, the university no longer requires “high risk” approval from the Provost for domestic travel. International travel will continue to require “high-risk” approval from the Provost, Russ Moore, until the university lifts this restriction.

Going forward domestic travel will be approved by CIRES Travel, the CIRES Director, and the CIRES Org Officer, Terri Fiez. In order to travel, researchers must submit and receive approval for their Return to Research request, in addition to their travel request.

To request approval for domestic travel, you may email or go into InsideCIRES and submit a Travel Request.
