This procedure describes the guidelines and fees for community use of college facilities. The college also recognizes its responsibilities to serve the community in other ways and, therefore, will make buildings and facilities available for community use, providing such use is not in conflict with the needs of the educational programs. (See Facilities: Community Use).
Fees for facilities use are assessed under the following guidelines.
- Institutions or groups providing service for Lane Community College students or employees, and tax or public supported nonprofit institutions and organizations, will not be charged a fee for that activity unless the administration feels that additional expenses are involved.
- Other nonprofit organizations may use college facilities with the prior approval of the president or designee. These organizations will be charged facility fees, fees for additional costs incurred and, if applicable, a percentage of the gross of money-raising projects. Non-profit organizations are not charged a facility fee for use of a classroom space if their activity is free to attendees.
- For-profit organizations, other than college organizations or groups engaged in money-making projects, will be charged applicable fees plus 10 percent of the gross income taken in by the project.
Religious Worship or Sectarian Instruction
Any outside group using college facilities for the activity of religious worship or sectarian instruction is classified within group #2 above and will be charged the facility fee in addition to other charges. Religious worship or sectarian instruction is described as follows.
- "Religious Worship" refers to the act of paying homage, displaying reverence, paying divine honors to a deity; or treating with reverence due to merit and worth; respect, honor or revering with extreme respect and veneration. If an assembly or persons gather together and precepts of religion are taught, the assembly is worshiping and the occasion is one for religious worship.
- "Sectarian Instruction" refers to instruction in religious doctrines only, which are adopted by some religious sects and reflected by others. Instruction is sectarian when it involves doctrine or dogma in which the religious sects are in conflict.
This section does not apply to recognized student religious groups or to outside religious organizations sponsored by student government.
