Fox World Travel named NU’s travel agency

The University of Nebraska announced that, effective Feb. 1, Fox World Travel will become the university’s official travel management company.

Fox World Travel will be the official travel management company for the University of Nebraska system starting Feb. 1.

The change was announced Oct. 17 in a joint statement by Bill Nunez, vice chancellor for business and finance at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln; Chris Kabourek, vice president and chief financial officer for the NU system; Doug Ewald, vice chancellor for business and finance at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and University of Nebraska Medical Center; and Jon Watts, vice chancellor for business and finance at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

“Travel is integral to the university’s mission of teaching, research and outreach,” the university leaders said. “As you indicated in a recent survey, having a trusted travel partner is important to you as you engage the university’s many constituencies across the state, country and the world. We are confident Fox World Travel will be a good partner going forward.”

In the spring, the NU system issued a request for proposals to travel agencies. A 13-member, systemwide committee representing faculty and staff from all four universities evaluated the proposals, and recommended Fox World Travel based on scores in areas including best practices, cost savings and pricing. Fox World Travel also is experienced in working with major universities including the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago.

The committee’s recommendation was supported by the chief business officers. The selection will be reported to the NU Board of Regents on Oct. 25.

NU’s current travel agency, Travel and Transport, will continue to provide travel management services through January.

Additional details about the transition will be announced. Faculty and staff should direct questions to NU’s travel office at
