PDP 205: Campus Flags
To establish guidelines for raising, lowering, and displaying the U.S. and Arizona flags at the university in compliance with federal and state law, and recognized customs or practices
36 United States Code § 175
19 Federal Register 1235, Proclamation No. 3044, as amended
Arizona Revised Statutes § 41–852
The guidelines for raising, lowering, and displaying the federal and state flags are specified in both the United States Code and the Arizona Revised Statutes. It is not the intent of this policy to duplicate the instructional content of those laws, but rather to provide additional specific manners in which the display of flags at half-staff are handled.
The president of the university or designee, in accord with U.S. and Arizona law, is the only party authorized to direct that the flag(s) be raised and lowered to half-staff.
All requests, both internally and externally, to have the flag(s) raised and lowered to half-staff are directed to the Office of the President.
The Department of Facilities Management is responsible for raising and lowering campus flags unless permission is granted to a specific department to maintain their flags (i.e., ASU Police Department).
