Campus policy.

Tacoma Community College is an educational institution provided and maintained by the people of the state of Washington. College premises are reserved primarily for educational use including, but not limited to, instruction, research, public assembly of college groups, student activities, and other activities related to the educational mission of the college. The public character of the college does not grant to individuals an unlimited license to engage in activity which limits, interferes with, or otherwise disrupts the normal activities for and to which the college's premises are dedicated. Accordingly, the college is a designated limited public forum opened for the express purposes recited herein and further subject to the time, place, and manner limitations and restrictions set forth in this chapter.
The purpose of the time, place, and manner regulations set forth in this policy is to establish procedures and reasonable controls for the use of college premises for both college and noncollege groups. It is intended to balance the college's responsibility to fulfill its mission as a state educational institution of Washington with the interests of college groups and noncollege groups who are interested in using the campus for purposes of speech, assembly, or expression. The college recognizes that college groups should be accorded the opportunity to utilize college premises to the fullest reasonable extent possible. The college intends to open its facilities to noncollege groups to a lesser extent as set forth herein.
It is the policy of Tacoma Community College to support the educational goals of all students regardless of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, or status as a disabled veteran. The college is committed to protecting the rights and dignity of each individual in the campus community and so will not tolerate discrimination of any kind, at any level.
