<< Return to Chapter 15: General Policies

With the exception of authorized Swarthmore charitable giving campaigns such as the United Way or development activities, direct solicitation (one individual directly and actively asking another individual for a contribution or a sale) by staff members of other staff members on Swarthmore time or in work areas is prohibited. Work time is defined as any time that those soliciting, or those being solicited, are supposed to be on duty.

While we recognize that there are many charitable groups and activities that staff members willingly support, directly soliciting contributions or sales can easily turn into an uncomfortable situation when some staff do not wish to support a particular effort.

Solicitation or distribution of unauthorized materials by anyone not employed by Swarthmore is prohibited at all times and in all areas of the College.
