  • With the exception of university-sanctioned activities, employees may not solicit during work time, may not distribute literature during work time or in work areas, and may not use the university’s e-mail system for non-job-related solicitations or distributions.
  • Prohibited Content: Posting content that is deemed by the University to be in violation of university policies, including the university Discrimination and Harassment Policy and the University Student Conduct Code, is prohibited and may subject the organization or individual to disciplinary action.
