7.11 Gifts to Faculty and Staff

University policy prohibits students from giving gifts of any value to CUNY staff or faculty. The University also prohibits its employees from accepting gifts of any value, either directly or indirectly, from any student, regardless of whether the gift was intended to influence or reward the employee. (CUNY has adopted a “zero tolerance” policy regarding gifts of any value to CUNY staff.) To protect staff and faculty at the Law School from being exposed to the risk of penalty, students may not use their own money or student organization money to purchase for staff or faculty, meals, tokens of appreciation, or anything of monetary value, no matter how heartfelt. Friendliness and good wishes, however, are always welcome.
