The purpose of this descriptive study

was to establish a comprehensive and

representative portrait of written policies with

respect to displaying art in student unions in the

United States. This study was designed to answer

the following question: What policies are

implemented in member colleges and universities

of the Association of College Unions International

with respect to the display of art in galleries

and public spaces in student unions in the United


One hundred institutions were selected for study

by a stratified random sampling of the 1997

membership list of the Association of College

Unions International. A total of 67 institutions

responded including 16 research universities, 33

comprehensive state universities, 15 liberal arts

colleges, and three community colleges. The

result of the document analysis demonstrated that

the majority of institutions in the sample, 60

percent, do not have a policy with respect to

displaying art in the gallery or public spaces

within the unions. Only 24 percent of the

institutions in the study have such a written

policy. The remaining institutions, 16 percent,

have gallery mission statements or exhibition

contracts. All policies received were classified

according to the a priori evaluation criteria set

in the study. Representative policy statements

were formulated from the information received.
