On occasion, student organizations or individual(s) promote public awareness on issues and concerns by “chalking” various areas of the campus grounds.
Chalking can occur on walkways or roads (not steps or buildings) as follows:
- The sponsoring group or individual must reserve the space to be chalked with the Director of Student Activities at least 24 hours in advance and by 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- No permanent markers may be used.
- Organizations or individual(s) responsible for chalking must clean the area by the following Sunday. There will be a $100 fine for groups or individuals who do not remove chalkings. Groups or individuals who chalk without reservations will be fined $250 and the chalking will be removed.
- Hate speech and/or messages that harass, as well as messages that can be construed as threats of emotional or physical harm toward an individual or group are not permitted.
Violators will be subject to fines and/or disciplinary action which could include sanctions for harassment and/or hate speech with penalties ranging from warning to suspension.
The Office of the Dean of Students reserves the right to rescind the chalking policy at any time if abuses occur .
