Section: Facilities and Property

Solicitation is not permitted on college property unless authorized by the president or his/her designees. Solicitation is defined as, but not limited to, an approach or request by an individual, business or commercial organization for the purpose of selling goods, products and/or services directly to faculty, staff and/or students for personal, business or commercial gain. Unauthorized vendors may not solicit business nor buy from or sell any products or services to faculty, staff, and/or students on college property or through the use of the college’s communication systems that are intended for the faculty, staff or students own individual use. This policy shall not prohibit vendors from providing information to college employees which may be intended for or necessary for conducting college business.

Employees and students shall not be permitted to sell goods, products and/or services directly to faculty, staff and/or students for personal, business or commercial gain in accordance with the terms as provided in the paragraph above. Employees or students wishing to offer products for sale which benefit a charitable organization or are items of a personal nature, such as used computer equipment or furniture, may do so through use of an appropriate campus listserv or by following the procedures for placing notices on the campus bulletin boards as established by the Student Services branch.

The college, its employees, and students shall not release lists of employee and/or student address and/or telephone numbers to vendors who are not specifically authorized to receive that information.
