MyPoly / Blackboard Posting Policy
A MyPoly / Blackboard posting is a community-wide bulletin communicating corporate level information of
importance to NYU-Poly Students and/or Employees. Examples of such bulletins include notifications of events of
university-wide interest, anticipated service disruptions, and terms/conditions of employment.
Due to the importance of this primary mass-communications vehicle to the NYU-Poly community, this procedure
is designed to ensure the appropriateness and correctness of what is communicated.
