Bulletin Board Guidelines:
SCC Student Life seeks to provide the campus community with an avenue to reach out to SCC students, faculty, and staff.
Bulletin boards on Southwestern Community College campuses are part of the college’s official strategic communications plan. They are intended for posting of news and events targeted toward current SCC students and are reserved primarily for use of internal college clubs, departments, and organizations.
All postings of SCC college news and events sponsored by college clubs, departments, and organizations (with appropriate content) may be posted by representatives of those organizations without prior approval
Off Campus groups/persons:
Off Campus groups/persons interested in promoting activities on SCC bulletin boards must receive an approval stamp, and review posting guidelines prior to posting information. Off campus groups have a 30 day posting limit for approved items. See Renea Winchester, information desk, Balsam Lobby. Information promoting off-campus activities without the proper approval stamp will be promptly removed.
SCC displays two types of bulletin boards: General Boards and Program Boards.
Program Bulletin Boards are created to market a specific program. General information postings are NOT allowed on Program Bulletin Boards. General information found on these boards will be promptly removed.
Guidelines for posting on General Bulletin Boards:
Posting is allowed under the following guidelines that are intended to ensure maximum opportunities for information dissemination and to minimize damage to campus facilities, littering, and posting of unauthorized material.
One poster per event is allowed, per bulletin board. Multiple posters will be removed.
Push pins are not provided, organizations posting events should bring their own push pins.
Posters covering other posters will be removed.
Maximum Flyer Size: 11’’ x 17’’
Posters should be promptly removed (within three days) after the event has occurred.
Materials for hanging flyers can cause damage to property on campus. Painted walls in buildings and glass on windows/doors are sensitive to adhesive materials and cause damage easily. Walls and doors (that don’t belong to individual office occupants), windows, ceilings, floors, elevators, trash receptacles, trees, light standards, permanent signs, other interior or exterior building surfaces, and similar locations are not appropriate places for posters. Posters found in such places will be removed by physical plant staff. If your group is found posting in such areas, you will be warned to stop. If posting continues in these areas you will lose posting privileges.
