A travel budget is allotted to fund faculty-led trips at Schreiner University, though this funding will vary from trip to trip. For more information, visit the Faculty-Led Trips web page.
Trip Funding: Trip applications will be evaluated by the Coordinator of Changing Global Society and the Student Travel Committee who will make their funding recommendations to the Provost.

Traveling With Other Types of Students
Driving Schreiner Students
Drivers are required to become institution-authorized if the student group or activity is associated with Schreiner University, the activity has been authorized by Schreiner University, or funding for the activity passes through Schreiner University or its accounts. If you are an institution-authorized driver, you do not need to collect liability forms from students you are transporting unless your travel falls into one of the four waiver-required travel categories (see Liability Waivers above). To become an institution-authorized driver contact Bill Muse, Vice President for Administration and Finance.
