Election year guidelines for faculty, staff
What are appropriate and permissible political activities, on state time or property, by UW employees and student organizations? The UW System Governmental Relations Office and the legal counsel’s office have websites outlining limitations on political campaign activities on campus. Sample questions:
• What is political campaign activity?
• May I support a candidate by wearing a button during work hours?
• What about limits, if any, on student organizations?
These answers and more (updated this year) are on-line at the UW System website at http://wwwnew.uwsa.edu/govrel/camprule.htm
