External Constituency Relations

Political Activity

Faculty members are entitled to engage freely in political activity consistent with obligations as teachers and scholars. The political positions assumed by members of the faculty are personal ones, and faculty members must ensure that they do not necessarily, nor even inferentially, imply that such positions are endorsed by the University. For this reason, a faculty member should avoid expressing such political positions on University letterhead.

Consulting and Internal Overload

The University recognizes that its faculty’s involvement in external organizations and industry may contribute to the public welfare, offer the faculty member an opportunity for professional growth, and enhance the faculty member’s expertise in his/her chosen discipline. To this end, the University permits faculty members to engage in Consulting.
