In the spirit of open inquiry and the free flow of ideas that accompany higher education’s traditional mission, it is the policy of the College Board of Trustees that written political campaign advertising and political forums/activities shall be allowed on real or personal property of the campus, according to the guidelines noted below. The College is committed to providing equal access to opposing political views. As a public institution of higher education, the College desires to remain neutral in political contests and, further, desires to avoid its campus becoming littered with political signs and posters. Written political campaign advertising and political forums/activities shall be allowed on real or personal property of the campus only if:
- Political forums/activities are confined to the room or area in which the activity has been authorized by the College to be held
- Printed materials are not permanently affixed to real or personal property of the College
- Printed materials do not obscure or cover campus signage or other printed material
- Printed materials and political forums/activities do not disrupt the College’s operation
- Printed materials and political forums/activities do not infringe on the privacy of students or employees
- Messages delivered via the College’s electronic and regular mail systems are confined to announcement of political activities which have been authorized to be held on campus
- Printed materials are removed immediately after the activity
- Printed materials and political forums/activities are approved as to the reasonable time, place and manner restrictions to be equally and fairly applied by the College President or his/her designee
None of the above restrictions is intended to prohibit posting of political materials in individual employees’ offices, individual students’ rooms in residence halls, or individual students’ apartments in Trapper Village or Trapper Village West. Exceptions to this policy may be made by the College.
