Usage of Monitors in Maucker Union
Updated as of October 28th, 2009
- Maucker Union provides space for the campus community to display advertising, announcements, and messages in the form of bulletin boards, electronic monitors, table tents, and display cases. University recognized groups/departments and approved non-profit community groups may also advertise.
- Each year, the by-laws for these monitors will be reevaluated by a sub-committee of the Student Affairs Committee. This is to ensure that the by-laws reflect positively on the mission of Maucker Union and university policies, along with student views and opinions on monitor usage.
- Use of the monitors for advertising and other pre-approved purposes is free to all recognized student organizations, university offices, departments, colleges, and divisions.
- NISG does not necessarily endorse messages or views expressed in advertisements.
Criteria for Approval
- The name or logo of the organization must appear on each advertising monitor slide.
- There is a limit of one slide per event, but multiple organizations/departments sponsoring the same event may submit one slide per organization.
- The message of the advertising slide cannot promote consumption of alcoholic beverages or the use of tobacco products or drugs.
- Advertising slides cannot promote credit cards.
- All advertising slides must be in compliance with any and all applicable University of Northern Iowa Policies and Procedures.
- Advertising slides may advertise products or services of a commercial business if they are part of a fundraiser or program for a recognized student organization or campus department.
