Peddling / Solicitation Policy

The University has established the following policy and procedures to ensure that soliciting activities are conducted in accordance with university policy and state law.

Definition of Solicitation

Solicitation is defined as contact for the purpose of:

  1. Soliciting funds or sales or demonstrations that result in sales;
  2. Distributing advertising or other material;
  3. Compiling data for surveys, programs or other purposes;
  4. Recruitment of members or support for an organization or cause;
  5. Providing educational information sessions (exclusive of formal Barry University academic classes).

Solicitation activities may not disrupt or interfere with the educational, administrative or operational activities of the University. Events, which are in violation of local, state, or federal law, Board of Trustees policy, or rules, regulations, and guidelines of the University, are prohibited.

An event that places an undue burden on campus facilities, interferes with the use of campus facilities by other persons, disrupts normal operations, infringes on the protected rights of others, and/or has as a principal goal to incite a riot or to disrupt other activities, may be denied the privilege of using the University facilities (or grounds) for solicitation and/or face disciplinary action.
