Fund-Raising and Solicitation of University Employees

  1. In all solicitations, whether for CMU or non-university causes, supervisors will not engage in solicitation of those reporting to them either directly or indirectly. For the purposes of this policy, solicitation is defined as a personal request, written or oral, for donations to any cause. It is NOT considered a solicitation for a supervisor to appeal to a body of employees for general support of a cause. Neither is it considered improper for supervisors to solicit employees not reporting to them.
  2. The President and Vice Presidents will not take part in direct solicitation of any employee.
