The buildings and green spaces taking shape across campus demonstrate Carteret Community College’s commitment to providing students with an attractive and well-manicured collegiate environment, and maintaining this environment is a priority. One way this carefully cultivated beauty is disrupted is through signage placed around campus. 

Without prior approval by the college President, no person shall erect or maintain upon any building or green space owned by the College any sign, marker, signal or light or imitation of any official sign, marker, signal or light, except in cases of emergency. Also, no person shall erect or maintain upon any building or green space any commercial or political advertising.

Signage displaying the following will either be not approved or immediately removed:

  • Commercial advertising via yard signs, fliers, or posters
  • Signs, clings, and/or posters attached to buildings, other structures, or landscape elements such as fences or trees
  • Signs not pre-approved by the President

Temporary signs, such as “welcome” banners and free-standing event notices, are allowed to be posted for College events, as long as they are professional and appropriate in appearance. They are not to be used as a substitute for other Policy governed signage. Temporary signs and notices shall be either free-standing or attached to posts erected for that purpose, and shall not be attached to walls, light posts, other signs, etc. 

All signage issues not specifically addressed by this or other College policies should be referred to the Marketing Department.
