The purpose of this policy is to set guidelines for an employee using one's association with the university for financial gain or other private interests.


Faculty, staff, and students.



No publication, statement, or activity, either on behalf of the University, or by an individual in official capacity, shall for financial gain endorse any commercial product or service, either directly or by implication except as an appropriate part of the individual's professional activity.  The exception to this is when an employee speaks or acts as a private person and clearly avoids creating the impression that the employee speaks or acts for Northern Michigan University in any manner.
