I. Out of courtesy and in order to avoid personal or institutional embarrassment, any individual or group planning to invite a person of local, regional, national, or world renown or interest to appear on the campus should notify the President's Office of this intention. The President's Office will make a determination as to whether protocol requires the anticipated invitation is to come from the President or whether it may come from another campus person. In the event that the invitation is NOT extended by the President, the inviting party should notify the President's Office immediately upon confirmation of acceptance of the invitation.
II. This policy applies to any invitation to any elected official from the city, the county, the state, or the nation, as well as to other persons. This courtesy should be extended even if the invited guest is scheduled only for a classroom appearance.
