Precluding the Direct Sale of Course Material

Royal Roads University Policy

First implemented: 
October 8, 2014
Approved By: 
Academic Council
Office of Oversight: 
AVP Research & Faculty Affairs

The direct sale (such as in the classroom) of course material by faculty members, including associate faculty, and staff may result in perceived conflict of interest and may make students feel obliged to purchase. As such, faculty members and staff are precluded from selling texts, course packs, course materials, and related instructional tools and services directly to students and from collecting fees from students for any course activity. All such material will be sold through the RRU bookstore or other authorized third party.
