Guidelines for Posting Print Material on Campus
The College has designated cork bulletin boards throughout the campus for the purpose of posting print materials. Glass-enclosed bulletin boards are used by the College for the purpose of posting information related to compliance. (See Appendix A, Location of College Bulletins Boards Designated for Posting Print Material.)

It does not include print materials which the College is required to post for compliance purposes. It also does not include instructional print materials distributed by faculty, or materials posted by faculty in the classroom during scheduled class meeting periods.
