The Joint Statement on Student Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities expectations related to the freedom of inquiry and expression in and out of the classroom. Within the provisions of that document and related policy statements, members of the college community are free to examine and express opinions about any matter. A distinction needs to be made, however, between the freedom of inquiry and expression and the privilege of promoting. By definition promotions include such things as: displaying, selling, distributing, or advertising products, services, activities, or substances; or soliciting - including fund drives.
As a private college Concordia has the right to restrict on-campus promotions that may run contrary to the standards and policies of the institution. Examples of products, services, activities or substances that may not be promoted on campus include, but are not limited to: tobacco; alcohol; illegal chemicals; gambling; contraceptives; dietary aids or supplements; pregnancy-related counseling and services not provided by the college; and anything that degrades or objectifies women or men or their race, religion, gender, age, ethnicity, national origin, physical appearance, disability or sexual orientation.
Generally, promotions may occur on campus if one or more of the following conditions exist:
1. The person(s) promoting is (are) being invited to the campus by an individual student, faculty member or staff member to meet solely with that person.
2. The promotion is being sponsored or co-sponsored and conducted by a recognized student organization or college department with significant benefit being derived by that organization or department.
3. The promotion has been approved by a student affairs dean or their designee.
If one of the above conditions is met, an individual or group may promote on campus within the following guidelines:
1. Door-to-door promotions are not allowed, except for candidates for political office or their representatives - provided that prior arrangements are made with a student affairs dean or his/her designee.
2. For-profit promotions are not allowed except for individuals who are expressly invited to the campus by a student, faculty or staff member, (e.g., an insurance salesperson meeting with an individual upon invitation) or paid advertisements being published in college-sponsored publications.
3. Promotions must be confined to designated times and public areas (such as) on appropriate bulletin boards around the campus and the Knutson Campus Center. Promotions are not allowed in the public areas of the residence halls unless they have been approved by the director of residence life or his/her designee. Promotions are not allowed in parking areas.
4. Promotions may not run contrary to the purposes, standards and policies of Concordia College, nor can normal operations of the college be disrupted in any way.
5. When conducting promotions, members of the college community may not be harassed in any way.
If the above guidelines are not met, the college may terminate a promotion or revoke permission already granted as well as prohibit similar promotions in the future.
