Public Events Board

II. Objective of Regulation

A Public Events Board will be established in the Office of Community Services, Cultural Programs. The purpose of this Board will be to develop and finance a comprehensive College-wide program of public events which meets the needs and interests of both College students and members of the community.

Therefore, this joint Board will be composed of representatives of the Student Government, faculty and community. Major emphasis will be placed on creating a forum on the arts and other communication techniques. However, non-profit community groups will be encouraged to use campus facilities when available, and present programs which are not part of the public Events Board, but only those that will bring credit and honor to the College and/or reflect a larger or growing community need.
