  • The policy applies to individual employees, describing the University principle that in order to avoid the appearance of favoritism, no officer or employee should accept any gift or gratuity from any source that is offered or reasonably appears to be offered because of the University position held by the officer or employee, nor should an officer or employee extend an offer of a gift on a similar basis.
