Community Use of College Facilities and Grounds

II. Objective of Policy

To establish a Board Policy for Community Use of College Facilities and Grounds

III. Authority

New Jersey Statute 18A:64A-12; New Jersey Administrative Code 9:4-1.3, Organization and Administration

IV. Policy Statement

In keeping with the role of Brookdale Community College as a public institution, the Board of Trustees desires that College facilities and grounds be made available to help meet the general educational, social, cultural and recreational needs of Monmouth County. Inasmuch as College facilities have been designed to support instructional and Community Development programs, the preservation of these facilities in appropriate condition shall be the College’s primary responsibility.

The President is authorized to develop and promulgate appropriate regulations for the use of College facilities by external groups, provided such use is consistent with the mission, goals and objectives of the College. These regulations shall set priorities provided that permission for facility use within each priority category is exercised in nondiscriminatory fashion.

Brookdale Community College supports the right of individual students, faculty, staff and student organizations to demonstrate and leaflet, provided such activities do not disrupt normal activities or infringe upon the rights of others. Persons who are not members of the student body, faculty or staff, may participate in demonstrations, leafleting or equivalent activities but are obligated to the terms of all College Policies and Regulations regarding such activities.

The regulations shall include a fee schedule to recover for the College both the direct and indirect costs of such use. The President is authorized to waive or modify fees in such cases where it is determined that such relief serves the best interests of the institution and the Monmouth County community.
