Purpose: 

Organizations may be established by Lane Community College employees and students, within the college, for any lawful purpose. This policy describes the requirements for membership of any such organizations and use of the College name, and offers specific guidance regarding the establishment of student organizations.

Narrative: 

Organizations may be established by Lane Community College employees and students, within the college, for any lawful purpose.

Membership in any college organization, including those affiliated with any other organization, shall not be denied because of age, sex, race, color, religion, physical or mental disability, national origin, marital status, pregnancy, veteran's status, familial relationship, expunged juvenile record, or association with anyone of a particular race, color, sex, national origin, marital status, age, or religion.

No Lane employee, student or group may use the college name in purporting to be representative of the college or any of its various organizations or sections without express permission from those so represented.

The college encourages the formation of student organizations as a fulfillment of the interests of the students and as an informal extension of the process of education. The administration and student representatives shall formulate rules for the recognition of student organizations. Only those recognized organizations shall be considered eligible to share in the rights and privileges of student activities, such as the use of college facilities, channels for publicity and staff sponsorship (see Student Organizations Guidelines).
