    Reason for Policy                                                                    

    Members of the Adelphi community are encouraged to exercise their individual right to support a particular candidate or participate in political campaigns as long as they do so without overtly or implicitly involving the University. The University must not endorse or make financial contributions to political candidates or political campaigns. This policy encourages freedom of expression of ideas of the individuals of the community but must be in compliance with the Federal Laws and University Policies. This policy defines political intervention and outlines the University’s requirements when involved in partisan activities.
