Information for U-M Affiliates: Guidelines for Political and Ballot Initiatives

Many members of the University community have asked about their rights and responsibilities, as public employees, in campaigning for or against a ballot initiative or political candidate. We have developed the following information to help you understand the many activities in which you may engage, either as private citizens or as members of the campus community, as well as those in which you may not engage if University resources would be used. Attorneys from the Office of the Vice President and General Counsel are available to answer any questions you may have. More information.
