The purpose of this procedure is to describe the kinds of occasions which are excluded. Tax-generated funds may not be used to purchase gifts in recognition of personal occasions.
Gifts officially presented by the college to college employees, students, and others to recognize certain personal occasions that arise (retirements, serious illness/injuries, deaths, special awards, etc.) may be purchased only from non-tax generated funds. These gifts must first be approved by the president.
This policy does not preclude the purchase of a gift by departmental employees or individuals who may wish to make personal contributions for a gift to be presented.
