Policies on Guest Speakers for Academic Societies

Academic Society Policies
Activities Guest Speakers Funding
  • Potential speakers should not be contacted until official approval for the request has been received from an associate dean from your college.

  • Approved guest speakers may only speak in academic society meetings. (To get approval for other audiences you must use a separate speaker request form from University Relations). 
  • Only advertise the speaker within your society or academic department. No campus-wide publicity of your guest speaker is permitted.

  • Guest speakers for societies should not:
    • advocate ideas in opposition to the teachings and doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints;
    • have a public reputation inconsistent with the moral values inherent in the Honor Code;
    • fund-raise for private enterprise, political parties, or candidates; or be General Church Officers or Authorities (due to their demanding schedules).
