Adams State College Poster Policy as proposed by the Poster Policy Committee
Kiosks, Bulletin Boards and Residence Halls
The Kiosks, Bulletin Boards and Residence Halls on campus shall be used for the purposes of general posting by the general public and campus community. To prevent damage only masking tape, tacks and staples shall be used to affix an item for posting. An item posted can not be duplicated on the space in which posted. To make sure room is available on the Kiosks, Bulletin Boards and in the Residence Halls all postings may be removed at the end of each semester to clear clutter off the boards. The college may remove any item that is in violation of the First Amendment limitations of Time, Place and Manner.
The above paragraph pertaining to the Bulletin Boards, however shall not apply to any bulletin board that is expressly reserved for the College departmental or College administrative purposes. No item shall be posted or remain posted on any reserved board without the permission of the department head or administrative officer who has reserved the board. Department heads, administrative officers or their staff, may remove any item posted on such reserved boards in violations of this paragraph.
The Rock is reserved for the use by the campus community for postings concerning a campus-sponsored or community event. Posting may occur by way of painting on The Rock. A person or organization desiring to post on The Rock may reserve the right to do so at the office of Student Affairs. Scheduling of the Rock shall be on a first come first serve basis.
Members of the campus community and community may hang banners outdoors immediately adjacent to the College Center and may hang banners indoors, within the atrium area of the College Center advertising an event provided that the banner(s) do not violate the First Amendment restrictions of time place and manner. The banner(s) may be hung during the period of 30 days prior to the event. The person(s) or entity (ies) that hung the banner(s) shall remove the banner(s) following the event. Any banner that obstructs pedestrian traffic or is hung in a manner that presents a risk of injury or damage to persons or property will be removed. To prevent damage to surfaces only masking tape, tacks or staples may be used to affix them.
Members of the campus community and community may apply washable chalk to the campus sidewalks. The posting again must comply with the first amendment rights and restrictions of Time Place and Manner.
Poles and Walls
Students are asked to refrain from taping flyers to light posts or other related poles on campus. They are also asked to refrain from posting on the walls and windows and only post on designated boards to prevent damage to the campus.
There shall be no posting, painting, use of banners or chalking at Adams State College except as provided above. The office of Student Affairs, College Center Staff and Housing and Residence Life Staff shall enforce this poster policy.
