Policy on Event/Announcement Signage

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro

  • (Approved by the Chancellor, May 26, 1997)

Policy

Signage that contains event and program announcements designed to inform faculty, students, staff, and the public of University events and activities must comply with the provisions of this policy. This policy does not apply to scoreboards specific to an athletic facility; to existing policies on the use of bulletin boards; to directional or building identification signs covered by the existing campus identification program; or, to announcements and information provided through the campus computing network.

Any permanent signage erected under this policy will conform to the standards of the campus graphics program.

The definition of a "sign" includes the structure required for its display.

The following are covered by this policy:

  1. Major campus perimeter announcement signs, whether permanent or temporary.
  2. Permanent and temporary announcement signs in interior areas of the campus.
  3. Signs and banners hung from light, power, and telephone poles.

Procedures

Major campus perimeter announcement signs:

These are signs located on the major campus perimeter of Market, Aycock, and Tate Streets and Oakland Avenue as well as Spring Garden Street. Such signs may be permanent and used to announce a variety of University activities or temporary with a purpose of announcing a single event. Design of these signs will be accomplished or approved by the Office of Facilities Design and Construction to be appropriate to the location and the University's campus graphics program. Posting of information on these signs will be the responsibility of University Advancement.

Announcement signs in interior areas of the campus:

These are signs located within the interior of the campus, on or outside of buildings, and may be either permanent and used to announce a variety of University activities or temporary in nature with a purpose of announcing a single event. Design of these signs will be accomplished or approved by the Office of Facilities Design and Construction to be appropriate to the location and the University's campus graphics program. Posting of information on these signs will be the responsibility of University Advancement or the appropriate office/unit as assigned by the Vice Chancellor for University Advancement.

Exceptions:Single event announcement signs designed similarly to real estate signs, placed along campus walkways and streets, that are placed and removed before and after events do not require prior approval. Banners to be hung on or inside buildings announcing specific activities and programs require approval of the individual responsible for that building.

Signs and banners hung from light, power, and telephone poles:

These are signs hung on brackets from light poles along perimeter and internal streets to the campus. These signs must comply with existing City of Greensboro regulations as well as those of the appropriate utility company. They are generally displayed for a designated period of time based on appropriate regulations. Scheduling and approval of these signs will be made by the Vice Chancellor for University Advancement or designee.
