Field Resources

Stanford EARTH Travel Registry

All field-related travel and course-related travel (including day trips), must be registered through the Stanford EARTH Travel Registry. The information collected (basic travel plans, participants information, and emergency contact info) will be used by your department/program staff and the Field Education Office to better provide logistics prior to departure (if requested) as well as any required support in emergencies.
