Lobbying Rules and Compliance

To ensure the University is in compliance with State and Federal lobbying rules, all departments and units must contact the Office of Government and Community Relations prior to any written or verbal communications with public officials relating to University interests. This also maximizes the positive impact of our advocacy efforts at all levels by making sure we are coordinating in a way that supports our institutional priorities.

The office also coordinates the tracking and reporting of all lobbying activities and expenditures, as required by law. Please refer to the form below for additional information and guidance.
