Helpful tips for inviting elected officials to campus.
UM-Dearborn students, faculty and staff are encouraged to consider inviting elected officials to campus to showcase research and projects on community impact. Having elected officials on campus to discuss relevant issues is another way to promote the work the university does and the quality of our students and faculty.
If you are interested in inviting an elected official to campus, please consider the following:
- Prior to extending an invitation to an elected official, please notify the Government Relations office so that we are aware of the request and can discuss strategy.
- Plan ahead! Many elected officials calendars are set weeks in advance.
- Before providing food/gifts to elected officials, please contact the Government Relations office to ensure you are within the monetary thresholds permitted by state law.
