Click for PDF copy.

Purpose

The college will provide students the opportunity to increase their leadership skills and academic proficiency through Student Life. Activity offerings will foster student participation through an array of choices.

Adding an Activity

The decision to add an activity will be based on the following criteria (not in priority order):

• Student interest
• Alignment with college strategic plan goals
• Availability of staff
• Availability of facility
• Availability of venues or athletic competition
• Availability of funding

Dropping an Activity

The decision to discontinue an activity will be based on the following criteria (not in priority order):

• Student participation
• Availability of staff
• Availability of facility
• Availability of venues or athletic competition
• Financial constraints
• Program integrity and compliance

Additions or deletions of student activities will be recommended by campus student life committees and will be shared through the college Communication Process. The President makes the final decision on activity programs. A dropped activity will remain on the list as inactive.

Activities that are discontinued could be offered on a club, intramural, or extramural basis if interest and resources permit.

Activity Budgets

Expenditures are incurred in accordance with state regulations, league rules and college policy.
