Policy Statement

The university recognizes employees participate in many organizations that conduct fundraising for non-profit and/or for profit. However, an employee should not actively solicit another employee at work with goods for sale as a fundraiser for a non-profit organization. Only university approved fundraising activities may be conducted while at work.

Employees may not use work time to engage in external business or activity(s), whether they are for non-profit or for profit. Additionally, employees may not use university resources to engage in external business or activity(s).

Employees are encouraged to participate in community activities and organizations, but must confine their activity to non-working hours. If employees have an opportunity to integrate the university community and the greater community, the employees should discuss the collaboration with their supervisor to ensure university approval. University-sponsored volunteer programs are permitted with supervisory approval. No university resources may be utilized by or for outside organizations without prior approval.
