Limitation of use to school activities.

(1) When allocating use of college facilities, the highest priority is always given to activities specifically related to the college's mission. No arrangements will be made that may interfere with or operate to the detriment of the college's own teaching or public service programs. In particular, college buildings, properties, and facilities, including those assigned to student programs, are used primarily for:
(a) The regularly established teaching or public service activities of the college and its departments;
(b) Training, educational, cultural, or recreational activities of the students, faculty, or staff;
(c) Short courses, inservices, seminars, or similar events, conducted either in the public service or for the advancement of specific college interests, when arranged under the sponsorship of the college;
(d) Public events of a professional or cultural nature brought to the campus at the request of college departments or committees and presented with their active sponsorship and active participation;
(e) Activities or programs sponsored by educational institutions, by state or federal agencies, by charitable agencies or civic or community organizations whose activities are of widespread public service and of a character appropriate to the college.
(2) College facilities may be used by student organizations for regular business meetings, social functions, and for programs open to the public. Any recognized campus student organization may invite speakers from outside the college community. The appearance of an invited speaker on campus does not represent an endorsement by the college, its students, faculty, administration, or the board of trustees, implicitly or explicitly, of the speaker's views.
(3) Reasonable conditions may be imposed to regulate the timeliness of requests, to determine the appropriateness of space assigned, time of use, and to insure the proper maintenance of the facilities. Subject to the same limitations, college facilities shall be made available for use by individuals or groups within the college community. Arrangements by both organizations and individuals must be made through the vice president of administrative services. Allocation of space shall be made by such officer in accordance with these rules, board of trustees policy, college administration policy and procedure, and on the basis of time, space, priority of request, and the demonstrated needs of the applicant.
(4) In determining whether to accept a request for the use of college facilities the administration shall use the following priorities: First, activities of a nature that qualify for state FTE support; second, activities that are operated under a contract with the college; third, activities that are operated under the college's community service program; and fourth, activities that constitute rental of the facility that is related to training.
(5) The college may restrict an individual's or a group's use of college facilities if that person or group has, in the past, physically abused college facilities or is delinquent in payment of charges imposed for prior use of college facilities or equipment or supplies associated with such use. Charges may be imposed for damage or for any costs for the use of facilities or equipment or supplies associated with facility use. The individual, group, or organization requesting space will be required to state in writing in advance the general purpose of any meeting.
