Travel Mission Statement

The Purdue University Travel Office is committed to excellence by providing accurate and timely travel reimbursements, training support and outstanding customer service through dedicated teamwork.

Spirit of Purdue University Travel Guidelines

All University travel guidelines are expected to be followed when traveling on official University business. All University travelers seeking reimbursement should incur the lowest reasonable travel expense and should exercise care to avoid impropriety or the appearance of impropriety, including the public perception that a business trip has been taken for personal reasons. If a circumstance arises that is not specifically covered, either the most conservative course within the "spirit" of the travel regulations shall be adopted or consultation for guidance with the Central Travel Office should be pursued.
