PART V. ADMINISTRATIVE, FINANCIAL, AND FACILITIES POLICIES

CHAPTER 9: FUND SOLICITATION

(Regents 9/11-12/69; amended 1/97; 10/05; 7/06; 2/07)

9.1 General
9.2 Mass E-mail Solicitation

9.1 GENERAL.
(Amended 7/06; 2/07)

This policy shall apply only to on-campus solicitations of money or goods by organizations that are neither officially recognized by nor affiliated with this University. Within the meaning of this policy, officially recognized organizations are organizations registered according to the provisions of the Policies and Regulations Affecting Students dealing with "Recognition of Student Organizations." Provisions for solicitation by student organizations are found in IV-4.3. Organizations affiliated with this University are organizations like, for example, The University of Iowa Alumni Association or Foundation. This policy does not apply to off-campus solicitations of University staff, to solicitations on campus by United States mail, or to on-campus solicitations by organizations recognized by or affiliated with the University when they are acting within the scope of their organizational purposes.

As used hereafter the term "organization" shall refer only to such non-recognized and non-affiliated organizations.

9.2 MASS E-MAIL SOLICITATION.
(10/05)

This policy applies only to the on-campus electronic solicitation of money by organizations either within or external to the University when the number of e-mail recipients is 1,000 or more employees. This policy strives to balance the primary use of employee e-mail, which is to conduct University business efficiently, with the desire that University employees have ample opportunity to be engaged citizens of the broader community through donating to worthy charitable causes. In cases where external organizations do not abide by this policy, the University reserves the right to take whatever actions are necessary to block outside e-mail and/or sever the University's relationship with the organization in order to preserve the integrity and efficiency of our systems.
