  • 1.  Posting Approval Policies

    Posted 08-15-2022 16:35
    Hi everyone, 

    I hope that everyone is enjoying the last bit of summer that we have left! I'm currently working on writing up a new Posting Policy for bulletin boards within our Student Center, as well as across campus. Would anyone be willing to share their institutions policies? Is your policy a loose guide, or is there a stricter set of guidelines for your groups to follow? How does the policy differ for on campus groups vs. community/off-campus groups? What does your approval process look like? Anything you are willing to share would be beneficial - thanks in advance!

    Hi Dominic, I am happy to share our policies with you. Our approval form that the client has to sign contains the policy so I think will answer the questions you have. We allow for posting both in our Student Center (our staff hangs the flyers) and in other "approved" posting locations on campus where both Temple students/staff/departments and external clients may post their flyers. Here is our policy for students/faculty and staff:


    and very similar is our external policy: 



    I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Good luck!

    Hi Dominic!

    This isn't necessarily related to bulletin boards, but I'm linking our digital signage guidelines in case it has some inspiration for you. A short rundown is we prioritize three categories:

    1. Approved events taking place in the Union
    2. Approved campus club/organization events
    3. Campus departmental services
    Member only events do not get approved to be displayed. Community/off-campus groups have to have a space reservation within the Union to be advertised and are limited to the the event day and our central screen. Only events with date, time, name/title and location are posted. We run most things for a maximum of two weeks with few exceptions. Over the last two years I've been lenient about having more than three ads run at once, but this year I'm looking to enforce it with the increased number of events expected.

    Here is our more in-depth campus policy.

    Hi Dominic!

    Here at the Iowa State University Memorial Union, we have a poster/flyer distribution process in place and our policies are listed here -->

    We only offer this service to recognized student organizations and ISU departments. If the student organization is advertising an event, the event must be approved through our event authorization process first. 

    Hope this is helpful to you!

    Hi Dominic-
    Our posting policy document is on our website here:

    We also have this posted at our one bulletin board where paper postings are permitted (say that three times fast!), not that it necessarily deters people from not abiding by our requests! If anything, it gives us something to point to if they get frustrated that we took their postings down or rearranged them!
