All solicitation, distribution
and/or fund-raising activities that are held at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside
must be sponsored and coordinated by a recognized student organization or
university department and approved by the University Activities Office,
Student Center L104. Fund raising activities that involve direct solicitation
of individuals and/or businesses must also be approved by the Office of University
Relations, 3319 Wyllie Hall. Fund raising through the sale of merchandise does
not need the approval of University Relations.
Space and/or tables for
approved sales and solicitation must be reserved through University Activities.
The sponsoring organization must be identified in some visible way at the table
at which the sales and solicitation occurs. If an off-campus vendor is utilized,
the financial relationship to the sponsoring organization also must be clearly
identified. For example, if the sponsoring organization receives a percentage
of sales, this financial agreement must be displayed publicly in the sales
area. Individuals staffing a sales or promotion table or area, shall not aggressively
solicit, or otherwise pressure a person to buy goods or services.
Student organizations who
sponsor sales and solicitations for the purposes of fund-raising, cannot deposit
proceeds into a private account in the event that set-up and promotion costs
are covered by segregated student fees.
For profit entities will
be allowed on campus a maximum of four days each academic year.
Questions regarding this
policy may be directed to the Director of Student Life.
