The college encourages employees to exercise their rights with regard to political activity, considering the following guidelines:

  • Employees may not actively manage a campaign, campaign for political office, or engage in political activity while at work or during any period of time that they are receiving compensation from the college.
  • Employees may not use the authority of their positions or college funds, phones, faxes, supplies, bulletin boards, campus mailboxes, electronic mail, or vehicles to support or oppose any candidate, party, or issue in an election for office or party nominations.
  • A supervisor may not institute, issue, or enforce any rule or policy that interferes with the right of college employees to engage in political activity on their own time.
  • A supervisor may not coerce an employee to support or contribute to a political candidate, party, or cause.
