Fundraising by approved agencies and student organizations may be permissible if the activity benefits the University as a whole and supports an educational or public service function.  The use of University facilities for sales or solicitation for private gain is prohibited except at approved outlets as defined in the policy on Sale of Commercial Products. 



Fundraising for such projects as the establishment and growth of scholarship and loan funds, the development of University facilities and the expansion of research, teaching and service initiatives of the University must not be in conflict with University Advancement.  In the case of student organizations such fundraising projects must have the prior written approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs or his/her designee. 



The President of the University or his/her designee is responsible for implementation of this policy as it relates to all non-student groups and the Vice President for Student Affairs is responsible for implementation of the policy in terms of student organizations. 



This policy applies to all forms of fundraising by University agencies and student organizations except for fundraising under the auspices of University Advancement or for University-sponsored initiatives such as the annual United Way Campaign.
