Hospitality expenses should be targeted primarily toward prospective and current students, development opportunities, and selected recruitment activities. Daily and/or ongoing hospitality expenses (i.e.,coffee, soft drinks, bottled water, and food) for the benefit of faculty and staff are inappropriate and not encouraged.
Process for approval:

- Approved requests (purchase order number) should be forwarded to the facilities coordinator and Pedestal Services for order confirmation and reservation.
- Please allow seven business days for completing this process. Requests submitted outside of this time constraint may not be approved.
All food served to the campus community and public should be coordinated with Pedestal Services. Any exception to this policy must be approved in advance by Pedestal Services.
