Publicity

Flyers, Posters and Printed Materials

Student organizations will be held accountable to adhere to all guidelines as they appear in the "Web Policies and Procedures," "Graphic Standards Style Guide," "Social Media Guidelines" and the "Content Style Guide," which are published by the Office for University Relations. To ensure quality, accuracy and consistency, all University publications, posters, flyers, brochures -- any public relations or publicity materials -- must be submitted to the Office of Student Life. Materials intended for a wider audience or for use off-campus must also have the approval of University Relations before printing or copying. Publications where design and copy are completely prepared will be reviewed and returned to the originator with approval or modifications within three business days.

Assistance in design, writing and/or printing will be provided by University Relations as requested. Time required for this service varies according to the nature of the publication and is outlined the "Project Timelines" guide; to ensure sufficient time, the University Relations staff should be consulted early in the event-planning process.

Sponsoring student organizations and University offices are encouraged to publicize events with posters and flyers. All promotional material distributed by students and student organizations must be approved by the Student Activities office in advance of posting. Unapproved flyers will be removed.

The University reserves the right to regulate locations on campus where posting or distribution of materials can occur.
