SA.07.003 - Policy on Distribution of Written Materials
The policy on the distribution of written materials is intended to establish guidelines for posting of materials, which will allow for the promotion of ideas and events pertinent to the campus community. This policy is also intended to establish a consistent standard with respect to what is acceptable for posting and the timeframes for which these materials may be posted and subsequently removed.
This policy is necessary to help maintain the esthetic beauty and quality of the campus while also helping to maintain the structural integrity of University buildings and facilities.
