6.10 Collections and Solicitations

To prevent interruption and interference in the daily work of the University, no solicitations, collections, distributions, benefit requests, sales activities or other similar actions are allowed for any purpose while you are on University premises. It is the position of the University that preventive action of this type is necessary to ensure that the normal workflow of the University is not interrupted and to ensure that patients and their families visiting the hospitals are protected from anything that may disrupt the progress and well-being of the patient.

The annual United Way Campaign, USA’s Annual Fund, and the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Walk are the only solicitations which are sanctioned by the University. Other fund-raising events solely for the benefit of the University may be approved by the President.
