Visit PASSHE's Employee Travel Expense Reimbursement Rates per the Board of Governors’ Policy 1986-07-A, Travel Expense Regulations.

If renting a vehicle, all ESU employees are required to use the Trip Optimizer.

Research Compliance: If research involves the use of human subjects, please visit ESU's Institutional Review Board (IRB) and complete the application BEFORE submitting your grant proposal. For the use of live animals, visit the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) site and fill out the application.
