All University travel for faculty, students, staff and visitors must still receive approval.  Travelers must complete the Request for Travel Exemption During Pandemic prior to their trip.  Completed forms – including your signature and the signature of your chair - should be routed to Shea Wolfe (swolfe1@uchicago.edu) for review and approval. Please plan on providing this form to Shea at least one quarter in advance of your planned travel.  Please review the Go Forward website for additional information.
