The President should actively participate in raising funds from the private sector by identifying and developing relationships with potential donors as requested by the Fundraising office.
Faculty may assist in fundraising activities by identifying potential donors to the Fundraising office. Faculty must request the assistance from and work through the Fundraising office in the event they identify or come upon potential donors/donations.
Individual faculty should refrain from negotiating with donors in the absence of first identifying the donor to the Fundraising office. This avoids a) the potential embarrassment of more than one faculty member pursuing a donor simultaneously and b) solicitation in the absence of full knowledge and a sound solicitation plan.
