At their meeting in Buffalo last Thursday, the Northern Wyoming Community College District's Board of Trustees voted to approve changes in policy affecting the use of college resources.

According to information on the meeting's agenda, the updated policy is the result of an AQIP project led by Facilities Director Kent Andersen, with help from members across the district from different departments.

President Dr. Paul Young explained the revisions further at the meeting.

The revisions were approved on third and final reading at the meeting last week.

Use of College Resources

Former policy:

I. The college encourages the public use of college proerty and other resources as it relates to the mission and goals of the College as interpreted by the administration. Such use may require a fee be charged. All federal and state laws and college regulations, where applicable, shall be adhered to.

II. The use of college resources for personal benefit is prohibited unless authorized in writing by the President or Board of Trustees.

New policy:

I. As a public institution of higher education, Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) seeks to enhance its mission of creating student success and making a difference in our communities by providing comprehensive multifunctional facilities. The facilities of NWCCD exist for use by our students, faculty, staff, and affiliated constituencies for the primary purpose of education. When space is available and resources allow, the district is committed to making our facilities available to groups and organizations outside NWCCD.

II. Priority for the use of a specific facility within the context of the purpose for which a facility was designed (i.e. gym, classroom etc.) is as follows: A) District academic activities. B) District sponsored events including student events and athletic events. C) District related and co-sponsored activities. D) External constituents.

III. Once academic and student requests have been schedued, requests will be scheduled on a first-come, first-servd basis. The President may supercede scheduling priorities and maintains the right to decide which activities are appropriate to be held on NWCCD campuses.
