|University of Arkansas at Little Rock|
|Policy Name: Outside Salespersons and Solicitors or Solicitation and Fundraising|
|Policy Number: 211.4|
|Effective Date: April 1, 2010 (review date)|
The buildings and grounds owned by the Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas exist for, and are exclusively devoted to the use for the conduct of an organized and approved university program of higher education. As such, they are committed to being used for the nonprofit, tax-exempt use of the official program of the university.
Private business activities including person-to-person solicitation for profit are not permitted on university premises. In certain limited areas, the university contracts with private firms to provide needed on-campus services for the convenience of students, faculty, and staff when the services contribute to the accomplishment of the university’s educational purposes. Apart from prohibiting profit-making commercial business activities, the university also regulates, within limits, and consistent with the above policy, any use of its buildings and grounds for solicitation, including fund-raising activities. Fundraising activities must not violate state law by including a drawing, raffle, lottery, game of chance, or any scheme for distribution of prizes among persons who are paying for a chance to obtain a prize. The Arkansas Constitution, Articles 14 and 19, states: “Lotteries Prohibited – no lottery shall be authorized by this State, nor shall the sale of lottery tickets be allowed.” Arkansas Statute 41-2025 specifically supports this article. Inquiries relating to any of these policies should be directed to the Office of the Dean of Students.
