Protocols and Standards for Electronic Marquees


These standards and protocols govern the operation of electronic marquees on the University of San Diego campus. Marquees currently are located at the east [main] and west entrances to the campus. The Office of University Scheduling is responsible for overseeing and managing the posting of information on each of the marquees.

The marquees are to be used for event promotion, community awareness, and parking management. Only USD Departments and registered student organizations may submit requests to post information on the marquees.

A request to post information on a marquee must be made in connection with an event that has a planned attendance of at least 50 people. In addition, the request to post information on a marquee must be made in connection with an event that is open to the entire USD community or an event that is co-sponsored by USD. A department or registered student organization may request the posting of general USD community information on a marquee; however, such information will be posted only on a space-available basis.

A request to post information on a marquee must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event. To post information regarding an event, the Marquee Request Form should be filled out. An email response will be sent to the requestor approving or denying the request.

The Office of University Scheduling has the sole and complete discretion to approve or deny any request to post information on a marquee. For a request that is approved, the Office of University Scheduling has the sole and complete discretion to determine the content and scheduling of the information posted.

The Office of University Scheduling has the authority to determine the maximum number of messages that may be posted on a marquee at any given time. Inquiries about this policy may be forwarded to the Office of University Scheduling at x7574, or marquee@sandiego.edu.
