Mixed Gender/Companion Travel

Work responsibilities often require mixed-gender groups to travel together to the same location. Wisdom, sensitivity and good judgment should be exercised when making travel arrangements for University business or other sponsored trips to avoid compromising the integrity of appropriate relationships or reflecting poorly on the individuals, the University, or the Church.  Non-related University students and employees should not travel by vehicle one-on-one with a member of the opposite gender.  (Travel by common carrier is allowed.)  Any additional travel costs that may result from this policy are authorized and will be budgeted and borne by the impacted University unit.
