The Poster and Distribution Policy is designed to limit the amount of non-student-sponsored literature on campus and to maintain an orderly appearance while reducing maintenance costs (painting, wallpapering, etc.) of campus buildings.
- Print posters/signage (primarily used to advertise events) are not allowed in the front entrance or elsewhere in the school. High-quality digital monitors are available through which departments, groups, programs, and institutes can advertise events. There is an exception for directional or other signage the day of an event.
- To the extent feasible, Marketing will continue to support the types of events it has supported in the past and will do design work to create digital posters. If Marketing cannot support an event, Marketing will provide a template that can be completed to have an event promoted on the digital monitors.
- Notices, posters, or any other signage are not allowed on painted, glass, or wallpapered surfaces or n windows or doors.
- Any outside (non-MHSL) notices or posters must clearly identify the author or sponsoring organization and displayed only in the designated area in Hachey Commons. No anonymous materials may be posted or distributed. All such posters or notices must be approved by the Office of Student Affairs, Facilities Manager, or the Director of Facilities prior to posting. Under no circumstances should this material be posted on campus for more than two weeks.
- Under special circumstances, the Dean of Students may temporarily suspend these rules.
The Student Bar Association is responsible for removing unauthorized posters from Hachey Commons. The Maintenance staff is responsible for removing all unauthorized posters from other parts of the building. Organizations and departments of the law school are responsible for maintaining their designated bulletin boards.
