Statement of purpose.

The purpose of this chapter is to establish procedures and reasonable controls for the use of college property by all college and noncollege groups. Bellevue College is an educational institution provided and maintained by the people of the state of Washington. The college reserves its property for activities that are related to its broad educational mission. When not being used for those purposes, college property may be made available to other individuals and organizations.
Consistent with RCW 28B.50.140(7) and 28B.50.140(9), college property should be available for a variety of uses which are of benefit to either the college community or the general public if such uses substantially relate to and do not interfere with the mission of the college. However, a state agency is under no obligation to make its property available to the general public for private purposes.
When determining whether to authorize a particular use, primary consideration shall be given at all times to activities related to the college's mission, and no arrangements shall be made that may interfere with, or operate to the detriment of, the college's own teaching, student programming, or other college-sponsored programs.
