Letters to the Press and other forms of Public Statement

The University Chief Operating Officer is responsible to the University Court for ensuring that the University's official view is properly and appropriately communicated outside the University. In this regard, the Chief Operating Officer works closely with the Chairman of Court, the Principal and Marketing and Development Services. Members of staff when acting in a private capacity should make it clear to the public that the views they are expressing are those of private individuals. University addresses should not be used in such public statements. Public statements made in the name of the University of Strathclyde must be cleared in advance with the Chief Operating Officer.
