5-39 CAMPUS ADVERTISING AND POSTING OF LITERATURE

39.1 All advertising by non-campus individuals and businesses must be approved by the vice president of student services.

39.2 All advertising literature must have a stamp of "approved advertising" to be considered legal for campus posting. This stamp is in the office of the vice president of student services. (Board of Regents Policy, Re: l991)

39.3 It is against Dixie State College policy for businesses or individuals to tape or post bulletins, flyers, cards, banners, or posters on campus buildings, car windshields, trees, or any structure other than approved bulletin boards. Such materials may be removed immediately by campus personnel or the individuals may be contacted and requested to remove their "non-approved" literature within one hour of posting, so as to avoid campus litter.

39.4 Individuals posting "non-approved" literature may be cited for violation of Utah state law and fined for littering and/or violations listed above.

39.5 In general, only promotional literature that is sponsored by college organizations or other approved entities will be allowed on campus.

39.5.1 Organizations or individuals who attempt to profit from students may not advertise unless the benefits of their product or service outweigh the financial output of students who wish to take advantage of their products or services. This judgment call of student benefit is at the discretion of the vice president of student services.

39.6 Political candidates for public office may not advertise on campus unless they use the approved bulletin boards, etc., and have the approval of the vice president of student services. As an institution of higher education which promotes the democratic process, the students of Dixie State College are anxious to hear the political views and platforms of all elected officials, and therefore, welcome public information and dialogue. With this in mind, it is recommended that public debates, speeches, and appearances be scheduled for such venues. They should be arranged with appropriate campus officials.

39.7 Posted advertising must have the date posted, written, or stamped on the face. All approved campus advertising items will have a posting duration up to a maximum of 60 days. After 60 days, items will be removed.
