Various resources


Online reporting

  • Per the WMU-AAUP Agreement, PAR’s for the academic year 2016-17 must be submitted to the department chair by Oct. 15.  Please upload the PAR files on the College of Arts and Sciences server no later than Oct. 31.


Clery Act

It is important that the University is in full compliance with the Clery Act, particularly as it relates to travel by students. It is the responsibility of the academic departments and programs to comply with the The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act requirements when initiating student travel, and other off-campus student activities. 

The College of Arts and Sciences’ dean’s office will only approve travel reimbursement to departments and travelers who follow Clery requirements. As a result, a Clery Reporting Form needs to be attached, along with other supporting materials such as lodging receipts, etc., for reimbursement to be authorized. This is required whether travel is reimbursed through a travel reimbursement or a voucher.
