Solicitation by one staff member of another for any purpose is prohibited while either staff member is on his/her working time ("working time" does not include meal periods, authorized rest breaks, or any period when staff members are properly not engaged in the performance of their work tasks). This includes solicitation on behalf of a staff member's child or other family member for the purpose of school, sport or other charitable organization's fundraiser.

Distribution of advertising materials, handbills, or printed or written literature of any kind by staff members to other staff members during work time or in work areas is prohibited.

Solicitation or distribution of advertising materials, handbills, or printed or written literature of any kind to staff members on the premises of the University by persons who are not associated with the University is prohibited at any time. This policy does not include University authorized vendors.

Solicitation of Gifts and Donations

Dominican University staff members who wish to solicit gifts (i.e., cash, goods or services) from outside entities, persons or organizations, should clear all such fundraising activities through the Office of University Advancement. Please contact the vice president for university advancement for assistance.
