Sponsoring the University, its Departments, Schools and Campuses

Sponsorships are permitted to pursue the institutional purposes of the University, excluding all forms of conflict of interest between the institutional activities of the University and the activities of the sponsor(s) and to obtain cost savings and/or new income for the University.
