Endorsement of Candidates for Political Office by Senior Administrators

 

The University is happy to supply to any candidate for political office information of a substantive nature, whether it is information on agriculture, economics, education or any other topic. Most of the candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor have, in the past, requested and received factual information of this kind. The President and the President's principal staff members should take care not to go beyond this point and become actively involved by endorsing any candidate or becoming identified with any candidate. It is important that all candidates know they can receive factual information from the University, but it should be made clear that the administration of the University would not be identified with any candidate or any party.
