Guidelines Regarding Political Activity by Employees of the University

Submitted by Kris Boone, boone.3@osu.edu

University staff and faculty members are encouraged to fully and freely exercise their constitutional right to vote, as well as express their personal opinions regarding political candidates, issues, local, state, and national programs, initiatives, and referendums. However, employees are subject to restrictions on exercising these rights in a manner that suggests university endorsement of a cause or candidate. General guidelines on these restrictions can be found at: https://legal.osu.edu/topics/political-activity-guidelines.
