If speakers are traveling by train or plane, we ask requesting groups to purchase tickets. Please contact the Speakers' Bureau Coordinator with any questions or concerns.
On long trips (4 hours or more) we ask groups to arrange lodging for the night for our speakers, the number of rooms depending on the number of speakers and their genders. We can stay at guest housing on campuses, local motels, hotels, and bed and breakfast facilities.
