In the Spring of 2012 the Student Life Committee updated the poster policy. As of August 6, 2012 these policies will be put into place.
General campus bulletin boards are intended for use by student organizations and college departments for notices and posters concerning Calvin sponsored events. Departmental and permanently reserved bulletin boards (i.e., Religion, Financial Services) are not for general display.
All notices and posters from Calvin College Departments and Organizations must be approved by the Student Development office prior to posting on general campus bulletin boards.
Posters concerning events that are not sponsored by Calvin departments or organizations can only be posted on the two “community” bulletin boards located in the entrance to Johnny’s Café and immediately outside the Campus Store.
Posters concerning Residence Life events may only be on bulletin boards and brick work in residence halls and apartment lobbies only, and they need to be approved by Residence Life staff.
College employees may post articles and announcements outside of their offices or on their office doors. These articles/announcements do not need to be stamped. Academic departments may set their own policies for bulletin boards in their departments.
Exemptions to the poster policy may be obtained in special situations from the Dean of Student Development.
BUILDING MAINTENANCE, FACULTY, AND OTHER STAFF MEMBERS WILL ENFORCE THE POLICIES REGARDING PLACEMENT OF ALL POSTERS REGARDLESS OF THE ORGANIZATION OR COMMITTEE ORIGIN.
Approved by Student Life Committee: May 4, 2012 Effective Date: August 1, 2012
