Travel Arrangements

Make travel arrangements using Drake's preferred vendors. Using these services allows you to charge directly to a Drake Purchasing Card. Booking with another travel center or site will not be reimbursed. 

Tickets should be purchased at least 21 day in advance of the date of travel.  Reservations must be made for economy class on the lowest cost carrier meeting appropriate time considerations.

Managing Expeditures

The Center for the Humanities requires funding recipients and Center-supported program/event organizers to observe Drake University accounting guidelines. The University's tax-free status depends upon uniform observance of these guidelines. Expenses incurred in contravention of these guidelines will not be reimbursed.

Use the links below to access the Drake University Office of Business and Finance's guidelines:

The individual(s) in whose name a request for support has been made assumes responsibility for observing these guidelines.

Recipients should be aware of policies governing the reimbursement for food and drink expenses during travel and when hosting a University guest, including when students may attend meals, how many students and faculty may attend, how to calculate tips, whether alcoholic beverages may be ordered at meals, and how to use the University’s tax-exempt number.
