Signs/Structures on Campus

  1. Central Michigan University tradition recognizes that the following areas may be used as set forth below:

    1. The circle drive of the University Center is a place where REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONs of the University may place sandwich boards or temporary cloth banners carrying announcements or messages. These banners should be of cloth or other soft material and tied by cords to the trees, and may remain for a period up to one week. Signs not conforming to this general description will be removed. Each sandwich board must conspicuously show the initial date of the placement and the name of the sponsoring organization.

    2. The Warriner Mall area between the flagpole (north of Warriner Hall) and the south ends of Grawn and Smith Hall and the area between the Park Library and the Central Park pond are places where REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS of the University may place SIGNS and/or TEMPORARY STRUCTURES. No TEMPORARY STRUCTURE may be larger than 100 square feet or taller than 8 feet and must conspicuously show the initial date of the placement and the name of the sponsoring organization. The SIGNS/TEMPORARY STRUCTURES may not be placed on sidewalks, parking lots or walkways. They must be removed at the conclusion of the event but no later than 12:00 p.m. of the day immediately following the event, or within seven (7) days after placement and/or erection, whichever is sooner, except that the Dean of Students or designee may grant approval for a SIGN (not a TEMPORARY STRUCTURE) to remain longer. SIGNS and/or TEMPORARY STRUCTURES must conspicuously show the initial date of the placement and the name of the sponsoring organization.

    3. SIGNS/TEMPORARY STRUCTURES or signs are not permitted which advertise activities which are not permitted under the University Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Disciplinary Procedures, The Student Organizations Operation Guide, or the laws of the State of Michigan.

    4. Before a REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION displays a SIGN and/or TEMPORARY STRUCTURE, as permitted in this Section VI, the REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION must register with the Office of Student Life. To register, the REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION must provide its name, address, phone number, a general description of the SIGN/TEMPORARY STRUCTURE and the approximate time of the display.

    5. Before a REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION displays a banner or sandwich board as permitted in this Article VI, the REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION must register with the Office of Student Life. To register, the REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION must provide its name, address, phone number, a general description of the TEMPORARY STRUCTURES and the approximate time of the display.

  2. No SIGNS/TEMPORARY STRUCTURES shall be erected or placed on open campus grounds, except as provided in Section VI.B and:

    1. Signs may be placed concerning University business (events sponsored by the University itself).

    2. Signs directing people to events sponsored by organizations under contract with the University may be placed at designated spots provided they are agreed to as part of the contract with the University.

    3. Signs may be erected in the areas and subject to the conditions described in Section VI.A above.
