This procedure describes guidelines for appropriate use of funds when planning a retirement celebration. Departments are encouraged to find ways to honor and celebrate long-term employees at retirement within the requirements of good stewardship of resources
Departments are encouraged to find ways to honor and celebrate long-term employees at retirement within the following guidelines.
- Reasonable and prudent expenditure* of college funds for celebrations at college-owned facilities. A short summary of expenditures should be submitted to the President's Office after the event.
- No use of college funds for retirement celebrations held at locations other than college-owned facilities. The expenditure of even small amounts of college funds can create serious liability issues for the college and the sponsoring department.
- No use of college funds for retirement gifts.
- Strict compliance with Alcoholic Beverages on Campus for celebrations at college events.
*As an example, it would be reasonable to serve cake, snacks and/or punch to guests, but not a full meal.
