The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York has the following policy regarding the posting of flyers and other materials around the building. In addition to saving trees, the goals of the new policy are: to reduce the clutter of flyers taped to the surfaces in the building; present a neater appearance for visitors; protect painted surfaces from marring; and make better use of the cleaning staff time.
The posting of flyers and other materials is limited to designated bulletin boards which can be found near the restrooms on the 3rd floor of the building as well as the plastic inserts found on both 3rd and 4th floor restroom doors. Notices are not permitted on surfaces in public areas of the building, including walls, classroom/seminar doors, lockers, windows, partitions and bathroom stalls.
All materials displayed on bulletin boards in the building must include 1) the name of the Newmark J-School student, faculty or staff member or organization/office responsible for the posting and 2) the date of the event, deadline or the day of the posting. The individual or organization named on the posting is responsible for taking down the material. Postings by anyone else will be permitted at the discretion of the Office of Student Affairs.
The Newmark J-School reserves the right to take down all postings that do not comply with the policy or those displayed for more than two weeks from the posting date or the advertised event or deadline.
The administration would also like to remind everyone that announcement of events and deadlines are appropriate for posting to the class listserve (@journalism.cuny.edu). We encourage that in lieu of paper postings, community members use either class listserves or facebook groups to disseminate information whenever possible.
