Publicity Code and Information Dissemination
Students wishing to post, display, distribute, or otherwise make known an activity, event, or other piece of information should seek advance approval from Student Activities Office. This policy applies to all printed material distributed by students and all others on the VCCCD college campuses including, but not limited, to all petitions, circulars, leaflets, newspapers, and all materials displayed on bulletin boards, kiosks, signboards, or other such display areas. In no case should printed materials be placed on lamp poles, buildings, windows, doors, retaining walls, painted surfaces, sidewalks, plants, and other such places.
All printed materials should be clearly designed to meet the needs of students, staff, and faculty; and the event, activity, or program should be of obvious benefit to members of the campus community. All posted materials must display the VCCCD college campuses approval stamp. Requests by off-campus individuals or agencies to disseminate materials on the VCCCD college campuses should be referred to the Student Activities Office. Such material must be of a high campus value and pre-approval is required.
Posting of materials on bulletin boards and dissemination of information or petitions will be governed by time, place, situation, and manner requirements.
Coercion is not to be used to induce students to accept any printed material or to sign petitions. Individuals or groups are expected to use good taste in their manner of expressing ideas according to current law or civic policy.
