Student organizations, individuals, and departments are prohibited from serving as "fronts" for off-campus organizations. This means student organizations cannot sponsor, schedule, or plan events in order to give off-campus organizations un-affiliated with Stanford access to university space, information tables, the Stanford name or marks, or other university resources.
Some examples of fronted activities include:
- Third Party Involvement. Permitting a non-university group to schedule space or sponsor an event (commercial or non-profit) in any campus space, including residences and outdoors. This includes permitting a third party to plan, invite, advertise, sell tickets or otherwise directly plan or sponsor any part of a student organization activity.
- Use of the Stanford Name or Marks. Permitting any off-campus entity to use the Stanford name or the name of any student organization.
