Display Of Non-College Publications

SEARK is a “free marketplace of ideas” that guarantees the display of non-college publications on campus. SEARK does not approve, disapprove, support, or fail to support the content of the publications. This policy assists SEARK in managing the display and distribution of non-college publications.

Procedure for Posting Non-College Publications

  1. An Agreement for Display of Non-college Publications must be completed and filed in the Student Affairs Office. Agreements are renewed annually; however, SEARK can cancel an agreement at any time by issuing a two-week notice to the vendor.
  2. Student Affairs Office assigns display locations, and assignments are made solely at the discretion of SEARK.
  3. Display racks must be provided and used by the vendor to display publications.
  4. Publications that are primarily used for advertisement are subject to the SEARK Sales and Solicitation Policy. The policy must be followed, or the publication will be classified as an advertisement. It will then be removed and discarded, and the agreement with the vendor is canceled.
  5. Each publisher must keep its rack(s) clean and in good order. Only current issues should be displayed. Outdated materials are to be removed and discarded.
  6. SEARK display racks are for College registration information, college forms, etc., and are not to be used for any other purpose.
  7. SEARK retains the right to modify these regulations, particularly with regard to:
    • Removing outdated issues of a publication
    • Changing display locations
    • Canceling agreements
  8. Postings that violate the Display of Non-college Publications policy are discarded.
