Members of the University community may publicize their events or causes in designated areas on campus through several methods (see Special Mention section for information on chalking, leaflets, online calendars and table tents). The form and content of the publicity will not be restricted, unless it violates the law, falsely defames a specific individual, constitutes a genuine threat or harassment, unjustifiably invades substantial privacy or confidentiality interests, or is otherwise directly incompatible with the functioning of the University. Additionally, event advertising may not include any suggestion of the availability of alcohol. All postings outside the designated areas of Reynolds Club must state clearly the name of the University organization or department responsible for the posting, and if applicable, event date, time and location. Postings should not cover current postings belonging to other organizations or individuals. Posters and flyers should be affixed to designated areas using adhesives or tacks that are easily removed and that do not damage surfaces. The use of glue, packing tape, duct tape or nails is prohibited. Facilities Services regularly clears off designated posting areas around campus.
Violation of the Posting Policy may result in a range of consequences including the removal of postings by University staff, a fine or disciplinary action against the student group or individual student. Violation of the policy by individuals not affiliated with the University may result in criminal charges and/or a no-trespass warning. A member of the University community who believes that a particular posting on campus violates the law, falsely defames a specific individual, constitutes a genuine threat or harassment, or unjustifiably invades substantial privacy or confidentiality interests should contact UCPD (773-702-8181). Other questions or concerns about postings, including complaints about alteration, vandalism or unauthorized removal of current postings, should be directed to the Center for Leadership and Involvement (RC 016, 773-702-3343).
