VI - 2.05 - Policy on Advertising on University Grounds

I. Departmental bulletin boards are the responsibility of the departments, who shall make all decisions as to what material may be posted. Posting policy in the residence halls is determined by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. For general campus advertising and notices, the following policy applies:

A. All signs, announcements, bulletins, and other types of advertising material must be submitted to the Director of the Wiseman University Centre for stamped approval before being posted on bulletin boards in various buildings. Approval shall be without regard to content, except as permitted by law.

B. No more than one sign concerning the same event or containing the same information may be posted at any one time on any one bulletin board by a person/organization.

C. Unless approved by the Director of the University Centre, signs, announcements, bulletins, and any other types of material must not be affixed to trees, pillars, doors, walls, or any other area or surface. Exceptions will be made only in the event of a campus emergency as determined by the Executive Staff (the President, the Provost, and the Vice Presidents).

II. Enforcement of this policy is the responsibility of the person/organization posting the advertising/notice, and of the Director of the Wiseman University Centre and/or the facility manager. Facilities managers may remove extraneous signs. The person/organization posting the advertising/notice is also responsible for proper removal of material no later than one day after the event. Repeated violations of this policy will result in the offending organization being billed for the cost of removal by maintenance staff, and the posting privileges of the organization may be suspended or revoked.
