The Board of Trustees and the University ad- ministration respect the right of each University employee as a citizen to exercise freedom of expres- sion on legislative issues. At the same time, Univer- sity employees should not, unless authorized, attempt to speak as agents of the University in discussions with members of the Arkansas General Assembly, Arkansas constitutional officers, and members of Congress.
The President of the University, the Vice Presi- dent for University Relations and Public Service, and the Chancellors of the University campuses are the University officials responsible for liaison with members of Arkansas General Assembly, Arkan- sas constitutional officers, and members of Con- gress concerning legislation and programs affecting any unit of the University.
The Board of Trustees, through its Legislative Committee, works with the President in defining University policy matters. The Vice President for University Relations and the Chancellors are re- sponsible for interpreting the policy and present- ing data and other information to appropriate state officials and members of the Legislature.
University employees who wish the University to consider matters for incorporation into its legislative program should contact the Office of the Vice President for University Relations and public service.
