|AUTHORIZING BODY:||PRESIDENT’S CABINET|
|RESPONSIBLE OFFICE:||OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT|
|DATE ISSUED:||AUGUST 2007|
|LAST UPDATE:||OCTOBER 2007|
RATIONALE: To provide appropriate acknowledgment by Oakland University and to avoid inadvertent omission and alleviate duplication of floral tributes.
POLICY: The Office of the President will notify the campus community regarding the death of a member of the faculty, staff or retiree. Notices will not be sent for family members.
SCOPE AND APPLICABILITY: This policy is applicable to all faculty and staff of Oakland University.
PROCEDURES: The following departments should be notified of any qualified circumstances where a campus notification and/or floral tribute are recommended by completing Attachment B and fax to the appropriate area of responsibility.
This policy applies only to arrangements sent in the name of the University and charged to University funds. It does not prevent organizations that utilize agency funds derived from sources other than student assessments from purchasing floral arrangements. Permission to send floral tributes for non-University employees (major donors, state officials, friends of OU, etc.) from such funds must be approved by the respective Vice President.
This policy does not preclude flowers being sent by faculty and staff that are paid for by personal contributions. Floral arrangements for the birth of a baby may not be purchased with University funds.
