Over $1.2 million spent on travel by UA staff last year
Last year, the faculty and staff of the UA spent over $1.2 million on travel to places like Italy, France and Japan.
Employees of this university must travel by the least expensive means possible, which means that traveling coach is usually their only option, said Jose Montante, accounts payable and receiving coordinator.
"This is due to dollars because the university doesn't really have money," Montante said. "It normally doesn't fly with departments to send them first class."
