Dear Colleagues,

Representatives from textbook publishers can provide very helpful resources, both to the books themselves and sometimes to the use of ancillary materials of increasing technical complexity. We welcome their scheduled visits to campus to visit members of the faculty who have invited them. At the same time, many colleagues have complained about other activities by some representatives: specifically, uninvited and unscheduled approaches, usually to solicit use of the textbooks they represent.

It is in that context that the college has had in place for several years the following policy by which invited reps are welcome on campus so long as:

  • Security is notified in writing at least 24 hours in advance of the visit;
  • the faculty member who has invited the rep (or a designee) meets the rep at the security desk at the appointed time and escorts him or her to the office or classroom;
  • when the scheduled visit is over, the faculty member (or designee) escorts the rep to the exit.
