Policy

 

 

 

The Office of Institutional Advancement manages Worcester State College’s corporate cultivation and solicitation process and facilitates and monitors alliances with companies through the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations. To coordinate appeals and avoid duplicative and competing requests, the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations tracks corporate activity, including donations and sponsored research.

Procedure

 

 

 

 

Worcester State College faculty, staff or student groups must receive prior approval if they wish to request cash or in-kind support on behalf of a Worcester State College program or project.

 

Vendors who provide products and services related to interests of Worcester State College and its students are considered primary sponsorship candidates and may be contacted for program sponsorship for financial and/or in-kind support. Departments are encouraged to share information and contacts regarding vendors with whom they do business. This policy prohibits individuals or groups from soliciting sponsorships directly from these vendors without prior consultation with the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations.

 

In consideration of conflict of interest issues, appeals to individuals, vendors and businesses with current or the potential for having a future commercial relationship with Worcester State College will be made in the spirit of philanthropy with no overt or implied promise of future business or threat of withdrawal of business.

 

Purchasing and development functions within Worcester State College will remain completely separate.
