Faculty Personnel Policies

B13  Policy on Public Affairs

  1. All members of the College faculty are encouraged to participate in lawful political and public activity, so long as that activity takes place on their own time and at their own expense, and so long as it does not jeopardize performance of their responsibilities.

  2. While encouraging all such activity, the College disassociates itself from the political activity of any faculty member, supports no individual or party either with finance or influence, and maintains an official neutrality towards the political activity of any faculty member.

  3. It is proper and necessary that the administration of the College concern itself with public and political affairs which affect the College's economic or academic welfare.  Information concerning the administration's position is available from the Office of Public Relations.
