Relevant excerpt

On occasion, student organizations or individual(s) promote public awareness on issues and concerns by “chalking” various areas of the campus grounds.

Chalking may be done on walkways or roads (not steps or buildings) provided the following guidelines are followed.

  • Hate speech, harassing messages, as well as messages that could be construed as threats of emotional or physical harm toward an individual or group are not permitted.
  • Individuals or groups who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action, in addition to any fines imposed.

The Dean of Students Office reserves the right to rescind the chalking policy at any time if abuses occur.
