Policy

The institutions of the TBR System recognize the value of faculty and academic staff developing

global competence and as such extend the Tennessee liability coverage to faculty and staff

engaging in international education programs or courses to the extent that it is applicable in

foreign jurisdictions. These institutions encourage and support activities abroad for professional

development, teaching, research, and service with the host countries. The TBR recognizes that

these activities vary not only in purpose, but also in duration, type of arrangement with the host

country, responsibilities to the home institution, and funding source. Despite these considerable

variations, certain overall principles and policy apply.
