Pierce College Policy Manual
Return to College home page
Policy Status: Revised
The Board of Trustees believes that extension of the educational and community service opportunities is achieved when the districtís buildings, grounds, and facilities are made available for use by students, faculty, administration, staff,† and the community.† This use shall not interfere with regular college activities and shall be in accordance with the public interest, welfare, and laws of the State of Washington, and in the districtís best interest as interpreted by the administration and the board.
The board reserves the right to deny facility use to individuals or groups of a private nature whose activities, be they secret or otherwise, are inconsistent with the open and public nature of Pierce College and where such use would conflict with the purpose of the state and federal laws against discrimination.
The basis for establishing and charging use fee guidelines reflects the districtís intended cost of operations, and an evaluation of the intended purpose with respect to that of this district.† The board feels that groups affiliated with the college or organizations considered in close affiliation should be permitted access to facilities at the lowest charge of the fee schedule.† A current fee schedule is available in the Office of the Vice President of Administrative Services.
Policy Status: Revised
Auxiliary enterprises at Pierce College District Eleven shall exist to enhance the mission of the college.† For purposes of this policy, auxiliary enterprises shall include the college Bookstore, the sale of equipment or goods related to the academic and vocational programs of the college, and the rental of college facilities.† All provisions of goods, services, and/or facilities shall be directly and substantially related to the district mission.† The established fees for goods, services and facilities shall reflect their full direct and indirect costs; further, these fees shall be established with sensitivity to the prevailing rates within the educational district.† The review of the activities of the auxiliary enterprises is directed by the Vice President of Administrative Services, who shall approve proposals for new or altered services prior to implementation.
