Policies on Guest Speakers for Academic Societies
- 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).
