Intent

Presentation matters! No matter how important your message is, it will look unprofessional and uninteresting if you tape it to a wall. Since many people walk through our hallways (especially during recruitment periods), we want all of the information available in our halls to have an appearance that matches its content.

Guidelines for Displaying Material

  1. Nothing shall be taped to the walls. Everything should be:
    1. affixed to a bulletin board
    2. taped to a door
    3. hanging from the ceiling (e.g. research posters)
  2. Anything displayed in the hall must have an obvious point of contact. This can be achieved in many ways:
    1. You can put your name on the item being displayed
    2. You can put your name on the back of the item, if preferred
    3. You can rely on the contact information being obvious (for example, if the board itself has a clear point of contact)

Content Guidelines

Your door is your avenue for personal expression. The bulletin boards are for sharing research, or for sharing important news (such as department announcements, upcoming conferences, etc).

Nothing shall be removed from a board in the hall without permission of the owner, unless it is removed by the Board Czar or the Department Chair. Items should not be modified in any way once posted, without the permission of the content owner.

Board Allocation

The following boards are designated for specific purposes:

  • Undergraduate Board (near undergraduate majors lab)... also includes job advertisements
  • Department Notices (next to Pat's office)
  • Upcoming Conferences (next to mail room door, or as appropriate)
  • Graduate Student Life (next to graduate lounge)... also includes job advertisements
  • History of the UR CS department (to be determined)
  • Graduate School Advertisements (in the undergradate majors lab)


All other boards are available for use by any individual or group, but should be used to present information about research performed by URCS faculty or students. Please report board conflicts and abuse to Mike Spear.
