UMSL encourages political awareness among members of the campus community by recognizing the educational and civic merits of participation. Furthermore, the University is committed as an institution to strict neutrality regarding candidates and political events, to providing equality of treatment in so far as possible, and to preserving the right to privacy enjoyed by each of our students. In support of these principles, UMSL along with our other UM System campuses follows policies regarding activities in addition to following regular facilities rules and guidelines. In this policy, the word “candidate" refers to one who has filed with the appropriate governmental agency. No advertising for candidates or ballot initiatives are allowed in the Millennium Student Center (MSC).
