As the November election draws near, University of Utah employees may be asked to comment by media outlets on ballot initiatives that are up for vote. University of Utah remains neutral on all the ballot initiatives but is committed to being a trusted source for expert information.
As a reminder, employees who wish to engage in ballot initiative-related advocacy activities must do so on their own time and with their own resources. For instance, they may not use university email accounts for this purpose. In addition, employees who choose to share their personal opinion with media are expected to make it clear that they are speaking on their own behalf and not on behalf of the university.
