University of Iowa officials are defending increased travel spending for international efforts at a time when many units across campus have chopped travel expenses.

Units such as International Programs, Office for Study Abroad, and the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies, saw sizable travel expense increases in fiscal 2010. Those expenses included international and domestic travel.

University of Iowa employees spent more than $28 million on travel in fiscal 2010, a number that has steadily increased since 2006.

Of the $28,598,515 the UI spent in 2010, $3.6 million went to international travel, and $20.4 million to domestic travel outside Iowa. Almost one-third of the total was spent by the athletics department, which is fully self-sustaining. The figures were provided to The Daily Iowan in response to a public records request.

Officials said the spending was justified.
