华盛顿大学关于公共政策问题的议定书

Washington University is frequently approached to take a formal institutional position on issues of public policy (often presented as ballot initiatives, legislation, resolutions, regulations, ordinances, and executive orders to direct governmental/quasi-governmental action). Final approval of official institutional positions resides with the Chancellor and/or the Vice 校长 for Government & Community Relations, following consultation with appropriate University leadership. Groups and individuals affiliated with the University are not authorized to take institutional positions on public policy and should take care to clarify that any statements they make are not on behalf of the institution.

虽然每个请求的具体情况可能会有所不同,但有几个原则可以帮助指导校长和副校长进行这些决定:

  • 如果有关公共政策对大学教学,研究和临床护理的核心使命有影响
  • 如果公共政策直接影响大学的校园和/或学生,教师或工作人员

公共政策职位可能采取不同的形式,包括但不限于政府委员会之前的口头和书面证词;根据政府实体的正式要求提交的公众意见;协会信件,陈述和其他举措的机构或大臣签名;认证特定立法;民选官员,赞助立法或支持通过亲爱的同事字母的位置所大学的要求;并且,在广告,传单或其他类似媒体上纳入大学标志,这些媒体将表明大学支持特定的公共政策。
