Please be sure to take a moment to review CUNY’s Gift policy in the below email:
Some key points to highlight as we are entering the holiday season:
- Please be sure to forward this communication to all of your staff.
- Gifts from subordinates to supervisors are prohibited. This pertains to all supervisory roles including managers, directors, deans, and all executive staff titles.
- Gifts above $15 from vendors, students, parents, publishers, or interested persons/businesses who are doing or have done business with CUNY in recent history is also prohibited.
- Any perishable gifts worth more than $15, such as fruit baskets or other food, must be either returned to the sender, donated to charity, or placed in a common area of the office. Non-perishable gifts must be returned to the sender.
Have a wonderful holiday season.
