Hello Student Org Leader
We hope that your semester is off to a great start! As we hit the ground running, we wanted to send some important Student Organization updates your way.

Mandatory TCU Treasury Signatory Meetings

Tufts Community Union (TCU) will host its annual treasury meetings in September. These trainings will cover financial policies and procedures for the 2022-2023 academic year. Both signatories for all TCU Treasury Funded Organizations are required to attend one of the following trainings:

The TCU Treasury will follow-up with additional information and send invites directly to organization signatories.

Posting Policy 

Due to a high number of posting policy violations across campus, we wanted to take a moment to provide all student organization members a copy of the posting policy. Sanctions on student organizations and their members who violate the posting policy vary. If facilities must remove chalk or patch paint, student organizations will be charged for the associated costs. Repeated violations will result in loss of privileges to host programs or events, and/or derecognition. 
General Guidelines:
  • Posters advertising events sponsored by TCU-recognized organizations, including all fraternities and sororities, may be posted on campus only in authorized areas.
  • Postings should be attached with tacks or masking tape (scotch tape, duct tape, glue and staples are not permitted).
  • Organizations may not place their posters such that they obscure the posters of others.
  • No more than six total posters (maximum size of 11 x 17) will be allowed per event on the two primary outdoor posting locations on campus which include the Campus Center Breezeway between Bookstore and Mayer campus Center and the walls along the Tisch Library steps.
  • Any posting that cannot be immediately and easily removed, such as stickers, paint, spray chalk, is prohibited. Inside any residential building is prohibited. Please refer to the Residential Life Posting Policy for information on how to promote within a residence hall.
Authorized Locations:
  • Designated bulletin boards in academic buildings across campus, including: Aidekman, Barnum, Eaton, Olin, SEC, JCC, and 574 Boston Ave.
  • Designated bulletin boards in the Mayer Campus Center, Dewick, Carmichael, Tisch Library, Tisch Sports Complex, 230 The Fenway, and in the Identity Centers (with permission).

Chalking is permissible in outdoor, public areas where it can easily be washed away by rain. Chalking is not permitted in areas inaccessible to rain, such as the walkway between the Campus Center and the Bookstore or any vertical surface such as the sides of buildings, retaining walls, or the backs of steps. There is to be no use of materials other than water soluble sidewalk brand stick chalk, such as spray chalk.
