A Travel Registry is for students, faculty, staff and others who participate in MU related international travel. Examples of such travel include but are not limited to attending conferences, athletic events and training, conducting research, and representing MU when the experience is sponsored, endorsed, promoted, or financed by the university. Its purpose is to help assist students, faculty, staff and others during their travel who need support during emergency situations as they are engaging in international travel consistent with the broad activity and intellectual exploration inherent to the global reach of a university such as Millersville.
Students participating in a traditional study abroad program, MU Guided program, or a professional experience will be automatically registered through the travel registry when completing their regular study abroad application. Faculty running an MU Guided program will also be automatically registered when completing a Program Leader application.
WHAT IS AN EXPORT?
An export is any oral, written, electronic, or visual disclosure, shipment, transfer, or transmission of commodities, technology, information, technical data, assistance, or software codes to
- Anyone outside the U.S., including a U.S. citizen
- A non-U.S. individual wherever they are (deemed export)
- A foreign embassy or affiliate
EXPORT CONTROL REGULATIONS
Export control regulations are federal laws that prohibit the unlicensed export of certain commodities or information for reasons of national security or protections of trade. Export controls usually arise for one or more of the following reasons:
- The nature of the export has actual or potential military applications or economic protection issues.
- Government concerns about the destination country, organization, or individual.
- Government concerns about the declared or suspected end use or the end user of the export.
Jail sentences have been mandated for faculty members who break compliance rules in spending grant dollars and who transgress export controls. For example, a jury convicted a Tennessee professor of illegally exporting information to foreign countries via his graduate students and his trip to a foreign country and sentenced him in July 2009 to four years in federal prison.
HOW DOES PASSHE COMPLY?
In October 2012, the Chancellor signed formal Procedures/Standard 2012-14. This document provides background information about export control, defines general requirements for travel and shipment, and outlines individual and university responsibilities.For additional information, view the list of important documents or view the PASSHE Embargo and Export Control Resources (Note: This content is part of PASSHE’s secure intranet, so you will need your Employee Self-Service log-on to access it.
