Posting and Publicity Policy

The university has designed suitable areas in most buildings for the purpose of providing a place to post notices. The purpose of this set of procedures is to outline guidelines for the general posting and distribution of publicity material(s) as well as provide guidelines for the use of designated places on campus for the posting of said material(s).

Guidelines

Publicity materials shall not be posted or distributed until appropriate approval has been received. All announcements shall indicate the name of the individual or group sponsoring the notice and receive approval from the appropriate building manager. The sponsoring individual or group is responsible for removing the publicity material.

Publicity material(s) shall be posted only on bulletin boards or other approved areas designated in this policy. Under no circumstances shall any publicity material be placed, written, or painted upon any surface (interior or exterior) including, but not limited to trees or shrubs, cars, poles, signs, doors, windows, walls, sidewalks or other campus structures.

The primary advertising message may not promote alcohol or other drugs. Phrases or pictures promoting these substances must be avoided. Material must not contain statements or pictures that would reasonably be perceived as offensive or insensitive to any group on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, familial status, marital status, pregnancy, age, disability status or veteran status. Announcements failing to meet these requirements will be removed without notice.

The distribution of any publicity material(s) shall be consistent with the orderly conduct of the university's affairs, the maintenance of university property, and the free flow of traffic and persons. Efforts must be made to avoid litter. Distribution by means of personal solicitation, accosting individuals, hawking or shouting is strictly prohibited.

Violations of this policy constitute violations of university policy and will be addressed through appropriate disciplinary channels.
