  3. University employees, required by virtue of their office or at the request of their vice president to be at university events, or by the function they will perform at the event, will receive complementary tickets for themselves and their spouse or one guest. Other university employees who choose/wish to attend such events will pay the regular price of a ticket to that event.
  4. For university fund-raising events, the university department hosting the event will pay only the actual cost of the event for trustees, university officials and their spouses who are invited as guests.

Appropriate and reasonable representation from the office of development should be at all fund-raising events with the expense of the actual cost of their attendance charged to the budget of the office of development.
