Fr. Greenfield’s Message from his First Day on Campus

Yesterday was Fr. Greenfield’s first day on campus. He took time out of his day to record a message for the entire DeSales community; it was shared on our website and social media channels.

And, Fr. Jim launched his own Instagram account — you can follow him @desalesufrjim .

2018 Mileage Reimbursement Rate Increased

Effective January 1, 2018, the University’s business mileage reimbursement rate for travel in 2018 is $0.545 per mile. The rate equals the Internal Revenue Service reimbursement rate for the use of a personal vehicle for business mileage. Please note that mileage from/to home and work is not reimbursable business mileage. Please use the appropriate travel report form which is located on MyDSU/Menu/Forms & Documents/Business Office.

To ensure reimbursement of expenses, please review the DeSales Business and Travel Expenses Policy located on MyDSU/Menu/Forms & Documents/DeSales Documents/Business Office.
