Distribution of a publication / product on “behalf” of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
If a student organization intends to engage in any fundraising activity that involves the distribution of a publication / product on “behalf” of the University, the organization must receive written confirmation from Division of Student Affairs that it is University-approved. This can be achieved by contacting the organization’s advisor with all details of the publication or product. This includes, but is not limited to: planners, brochures, booklets, calendars, posters, coupon booklets.
If the student organization does not receive the explicit written confirmation of approval for such products, the student organization and/or the individual students will be responsible for any and all costs associated with the initiative.
Additionally, if the organization wishes to have materials delivered and/or distributed in the student centers, permission must be granted by Student Center staff for both. The Student Center has the right to refuse delivery if arrangements are not coordinated. Please see Student Center Policy “PUBLICATION DISTRIBUTION IN STUDENT CENTERS” (below).
Rutgers University Student Centers requests that all student organizations include the following disclaimer on every issue of a newspaper, newsletter, magazine or any other printed or electronic publication they produce:
“The views, opinions and representations in [name of student organization] are those of the student organization and do not represent the views, opinions or representations of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.”
