For the purposes of this policy, "sign" shall be defined as billboard, decal, notice, placard, poster, banner, or any kind of hand-held sign; and "posting" shall be defined as any means used for displaying a sign.

Except for non-permissible signs, as defined herein, a student or registered student organization may publicly post a sign on District property in areas or location designated by the College President or designee. No object other than a sign may be posted on District property.

Before publicly posting a sign, a student or registered student organization must:

  • Provide the Dean of Students Office a copy, photograph, or description of the sign to be posted.
  • Give notice to the Dean of Students containing the following information:
    • The name of the student or organization; and, if an organization, the name of its advisor.
    • The proposed general location for posting the sign.
    • The length of time the sign shall be posted.
    • The signature of the student; or, if an organization, the signature of its authorized representative and the signature of its advisor.
  • Place the date of posting on each sign posted.

A sign may not be attached to:

  • A shrub or plant.
  • A tree, except by string to its trunk.
  • A permanent sign installed for another purpose.
  • A fence or chain or its supporting structure.
  • A brick, concrete, or masonry structure.
  • A statue, monument, or similar structure.

A sign may not be posted:

  • On or adjacent to a fire hydrant.
  • On or between a curb and sidewalk.
  • In a College building except on a bulletin board.

A student or organization shall remove each of its signs not later than 14 days after posting or attaching or, if it relates to an event, not longer than 24 hours after the event to which it relates has ended. At the time of removal, the student or organization shall clean the area around which the sign was posted. No person may remove a sign posted or attached in accordance with this section without permission from the appropriate college administrator, the student, or the registered student organization.
