Sponsor/Host Policy

Seattle University sometimes partners with outside or community organizations to offer programs or events on campus that further the goals and mission of the university.  These relationships are beneficial both to Seattle University and to the organization working with us on the program.

In order to ensure that such relationships benefit the entire university in the best possible way, and are not enhancing individuals' relationships with outside institutions, the Sponsor/Host policy was created.

Please note that contrary to common use of the word, "sponsored" in this policy means an event that is essentially a Seattle University event.  "Hosted" refers to programs that are given some benefits by virtue of their relationship to the university.

The Sponsor/Host policy was adopted in 2007. Comments and suggestions on it are welcome, since it is the first version adopted by the university, and will likely undergo revision in the future.
