Campus Promotions

Student Life and Success is responsible for administering the campus promotions procedures. These procedures regulate all public areas on campus with the exception of faculty or department bulletin boards. They apply to all Brock University students, personnel, and the general public.

Students, personnel, recognized student and university organizations may have a sign publicly posted on University property if it’s consistent with the procedures outlined in the Campus Promotions Policy.
