No Sales and No Solicitation Policy
Unauthorized solicitors and unauthorized sales are not permitted on campus. Sales means peddling or otherwise selling, purchasing, or offering goods and services for sale or purchase, distributing advertising materials, circulars or product samples, or engaging in any other conduct relating to any outside business interest or for-profit or personal or professional economic benefit on university property or using university resources. Soliciting shall include canvassing, soliciting or seeking to obtain membership in or support for any organization, requesting contributions, and posting or distributing handbills, pamphlets, petitions, and materials of any like kind on campus property or using university resources (including without limitation bulletin boards, computers, mail, email and telecommunication systems, photocopiers and telephone lists and databases).
These procedures are designed to avoid disruption of university operations, to protect the safety and privacy of faculty, staff, visitors and students, and to help ensure a learning, living, and/or work environment free from intrusions.
Violations may result in termination of sales or solicitation. Violation by anyone not a member of the Viterbo University community may result in removal from university property. Legal prohibitions regarding physical presence on campus/trespassing may also be pursued.
Exclusions: These procedures apply to all students and employees as well as to visitors and non-university organizations and individuals. They do not apply to university-supported fundraisers or solicitations authorized by appropriate university officials or to normal business contacts by authorized vendor representatives engaging in business with the university in compliance with other university policies, provided such contacts are made with the consent of the appropriate department head or university official.
