Dear Collegiate Deans,

Please find attached a document that has recently been drafted by my office entitled “Guidelines Regarding Political Activity by Faculty of the University of Iowa.” The document was generated to ensure that UI faculty members know their rights and responsibilities under applicable policies as they engage in discourse about political matters.

Merit staff and graduate/teaching assistants are not eligible to teach a First-Year Seminar.
