U of G recognizes the importance of civic engagement and academic freedom and the role each has in developing global citizens. Members of the U of G community are encouraged to participate in the democratic process and may freely support and advocate for parties and candidates of their choosing. However, as a publicly supported institution, the University is non-partisan and neither supports or endorses any political party or platform.

The University of Guelph’s Election Policy outlines guidelines for campaign-related activities on campus and at regional facilities during an election period. Specifically, it outlines the University’s role in an election, as well as policies around campaign materials, use of University facilities and canvassing on U of G property and residences. This policy applies to all campuses and facilities of the University of Guelph, with the exception of the University of Guelph-Humber, which is governed by an equivalent policy at Humber College.

Please familiarize yourself with our election policy and don’t forget to vote.
