After geography professor Altha Cravey was asked by police to take down a “Hurston Hall” sign in her office in the newly renamed Carolina Hall Friday due to a strict policy regarding signs, administrators are examining that policy.
Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Matt Fajack said the policy, which defines what signs can and can’t be posted around campus, is too broad.
The policy, Section VI.B.2 in “The Use of University Facilities for Noncommmercial and Commercial Purposes, states “No notice, advertisement, or document of any kind shall be attached to any wall, door, lamppost, tree, or other surface except as provided in Section VI.B.1”
“(The policy) is ridiculous,” Fajack told the Faculty Executive Committee Monday. “I want to apologize to you about that.”
“Dr. Cravey rightly complained about freedom of speech issues,” he said.
