For full-time faculty and staff: Regular salary and benefits continue throughout the period of teaching, research or work abroad.
For part-time faculty: The host institution abroad must agree to provide compensation for teaching. The pay scale may differ from TU’s.
TU’s Office of International Programs will cover the cost of roundtrip economy airfare for faculty and staff members participating in an exchange or overseas opportunity approved by the university. Follow TU travel policies when purchasing tickets. Check price of airfare with the Office of International Programs prior to finalizing purchase.
As with any university-sponsored travel, the following forms should be completed:
Travel Authorization Form must be completed prior to departure
Travel Expense Voucher with receipts must be submitted upon return.
TU’s Office of International Programs will pay up to $200 for the shipping of teaching materials and supplies. Consult with the TU post office in the University Union for cost-effective shipping – e.g., weight and size restrictions; preferred carrier.
Replacement Personnel Expense
The TU department chair or supervisor is responsible for arranging coverage of the TU faculty or staff member’s teaching or workload if there is no matching exchange partner from the overseas institution. The Provost’s Office normally provides funds to cover the cost of replacement faculty coverage. Department chairs should contact the associate vice president of International Programs for further information. Typically, replacement personnel are not utilized for staff exchanges.
