University of Southern Indiana

Pott College Vehicle Use


The Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education has a small vehicle pool available for class field trips and field research. College owned vehicles are provided for official Pott College business only. Reservation eligibility is contingent upon completion of policy standard requirements.


The purpose of the Pott College Vehicle Policy is to ensure the safe operation of the vehicles used in accomplishing the Pott College mission. The Policy will also delineate procedures for reserving and maintaining the Pott College fleet.

This policy is intended to supplement existing University of Southern Indiana Policies on fleet operations, field trips, and travel. In the event of conflicting information, the more restrictive requirements should be met. Individual departments within the Pott College may supplement this document with their own policies that are more restrictive. This policy applies to all operations with the Pott College vehicles, even if driven by University employees who are not part of the college.

Failure to adhere to this policy could result in loss of driving privileges with the vehicles. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Dean of Pott College or his designate.


Drivers of Pott College vehicles must:

  1. Be faculty/staff or faculty sponsored student of Pott College (some exceptions apply for external reservations)
  2. Read the Pott College Vehicle Policy Handbook
  3. Watch the Van Driver Safety Training Video (below)
  4. Read the USI Fleet Safety Policy and complete the Agreement/Liability Form on the last page.
  5. Provide a photo copy of Driver License.
  6. Read the Vehicle Accident Reporting Procedures.  

Pott College Vehicle Fleet:

Reservation requests will be made through the vehicle reservation webpage.
Requests for vehicles will be processed through the Pott College Dean’s Office. You will receive email notification when your request has been through the approval process. Your vehicle reservation is not final until you receive confirmation from the Dean's office.  An inspection of the Pott College vehicle will take place after each usage.
