The Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) travel guidelines from September 1, 2020 are still in effect.

During spring semester 2020, the Chancellor indefinitely suspended both domestic and international travel outside of Minnesota for purposes related to college, university, and Minnesota State system official business. This means any travel where college or university resources would be spent on travel or attendance or if the employee would be on paid status during the event or session.As of September 1, 2020, colleges and university presidents are authorized to approve domestic travel outside of Minnesota to states contiguous to Minnesota (Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota) via ground transportation.Requests for college or university related travel outside of Minnesota and contiguous states will be considered on a case-by-case basis and should be submitted to Bill Maki, Vice Chancellor. The waiver request should include the details of the proposed travel, brief rationale of it, and verification of presidential endorsement.
