Rule 3344-61-14 | Candidacy for public office.
A professional staff member may run for public office under the following conditions:
(A) Notice requirement. The staff member shall submit a full statement of any proposed campaign activities and of the responsibilities of the office to the staff member's immediate supervisor.
(B) Employment status. When, in the judgment of the university, those activities and responsibilities will conflict with the staff member's professional obligations, a written application for reduced levels of employment and compensation, or for special leave without pay, will be submitted to the vice president of business affairs and finance or the provost at least ninety days before the assumption of said activities. The Cleveland state university board of trustees shall consider and vote upon such a request.
