Faculty Handbook

22. Faculty Rights

22.9. Political Activity

As a private citizen, any member of the faculty may endorse political candidates and take an active part in responsibilities of citizenship. However, faculty may not actively engage in campaigning for political candidates on campus or imply any endorsement of candidates by the College.


Any member of the faculty engaging in direct political activity off campus which will involve a substantial amount of time is expected to work out an agreement for released time with his/her Dean or Division Chair with the approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.


College faculty employed in federally funded programs must abide by limitations of the federal government relative to political activity.
