Student Travel Advisor Info
The opportunity to serve as an advisor for students attending a professional development event is priceless. Often students return from these travel experiences with a newfound excitement that cannot be duplicated in a traditional classroom experience. It is these travel opportunities that often determine a student’s career goals and aspirations. For an advisor to play a role in a student’s development is pivotal to his/her success at MSU Denver.
All students (both undergraduate and graduate students) must have a travel advisor (MSU Denver faculty or professional staff member) agree to accompany them on the trip. Students will not be eligible to apply for funding unless they have an approved travel advisor. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the proposal and presentation. The travel advisor may only be listed on a maximum of 3 proposals per professional development event. One advisor may not accompany more than 3 groups/pairs/individuals to one professional development event. This rule applies to group, pair, and individual funding.
Please note the deadlines for proposal submissions. There will not be any exceptions made to these deadlines. The travel advisor must adhere to all MSU Denver travel policies outlined in the Travel Guide. If the mode of transportation decided upon is an automobile, the advisor must either travel in the same car or in a caravan situation, with the students.
Additionally, the advisor must complete the Student Travel Advisor’s Role & Responsibilities Form. This form must be submitted before the deadline for which the group is applying for. In addition to completing this form, the advisor must attend the student presentation.
Once funding has been received the advisor will work with the Lead Student and Director of Student Travel to make the student(s) travel arrangements.
