The Office of Human Resources

Political Engagement and Brandeis Affiliation

A member of the Brandeis community shall not speak or act in the name of the University in a political campaign on behalf of a candidate for public office. Any person speaking for the University in an official capacity should make it clear when expressing an individual opinion that she/he is not stating a University position.

The name or seal of Brandeis University shall not be used for political purposes on any letters or other written material, or electronic media.

In political activity, the University title of a member of the faculty, staff, or student body may be used only for identification, and should be accompanied by a statement that the person is speaking individually, and not as a representative of the University.

Unauthorized use of University facilities, equipment, or supplies for commercial, political or other non-University related purposes is strictly prohibited.


This policy applies to all faculty and staff.
