GU International Travel Policy

Georgetown University recognizes and supports the significant international expertise of its faculty and the interest and engagement of its students, faculty and staff in global activities.  In September 2012, Georgetown University implemented an international travel policy for all faculty, staff, and students participating in international travel supported by or related to the university.
