The UW-La Crosse publicity guidelines have been developed by the Student Organizations Committee and approved through the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Student Association. These guidelines are an administrative function of University Centers.

Campus publicity is designed to provide the university community with information that will enhance the educational environment, information that leads to greater affiliation, cultural awareness, and educational opportunities.

The university accepts no responsibility or liability for posted materials, including content. The university reserves the right to remove publicity on registered boards that does not adhere to publicity guidelines.

University Centers is charged with carrying out the publicity guidelines. Any appeals of the interpretation of or exceptions to the Campus Publicity Guidelines must be directed to the Student Organizations Committee.
