Commercial Activity on Campus

Individuals, organizations and groups, both internal and external to Southern Union State Community College, may not conduct commercial transactions or engage in commercial speech on Southern Union State Community College property unless authorized pursuant to ACCS Board of Trustees Policy 515.01 and approved by the President in advance. No on-campus individual or organization may distribute literature, advertise, solicit customers, recruit volunteers, employees or members, seek donations, or make sales on campus without sponsorship by a registered student organization and approval by the President or Dean of Student Affairs.

Commercial speech means speech in which the speaker is engaged in commerce, the intended audience is commercial or actual or potential consumers, and the content of the message is commercial. Fundraising, including political fundraising, is considered solicitation and therefore deemed commercial speech under this policy.
