Ball State must ensure that the operation of University vehicles is done in a manner that minimizes risk to the general public as well as to our employees and students.  This policy which governs the use of Ball State vehicles is designed to support safe and prudent use of University owned, leased, and donated or rented vehicles, including personal vehicles in the event the vehicle is used on University Business.  University Business is defined as those activities that further the mission of the University and, in the case of an employee of the University, are within the scope and authority of that person’s employment or for activities which they are seeking mileage reimbursement.
