FAO 8.0 - Use of College Facilities for First Amendment Activities :


SUMMARY/SCOPE
This policy outlines the rights and restrictions for non-college groups to hold public gatherings on college property to exercise their free speech rights.

DESCRIPTION
Edmonds Community College is a public institution whose primary mission is to provide higher education to the people of Washington state and, as such, its facilities are primarily reserved for educational use, including instruction, research, public assembly of college groups, and student and staff activities that are directly related to the educational mission of the college. As a public institution, the college considers itself a forum for public assembly for the purpose of constitutionally protected free speech. Therefore, the college intends to open its campus to non-college groups for public assembly to the extent that its usage does not conflict with the rights of college groups or disrupt the educational process. The college’s Use of College Facilities for First Amendment Activities policy is set out in WAC 132Y-136.
