WITC shall not be responsible for the loss, theft or damage to personal property nor for personal injury resulting from the conduct of activities under direction of users.  Any organization or group using WITC property shall be responsible for any damage to property during the  period of use.

FACILITY USAGE POLICY

The Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College Board supports and encourages the use of its facilities. These facilities may be made available to outside groups provided their use is consistent with this policy.

Types of Facilities Available

Fee Charges
Charges for use of college facilities, services, and property are defined in the administrative procedure entitled, "Facility Usage Fees."

Facility Use by Outside Groups

The College President/Director shall be authorized to grant use of Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College buildings on behalf of the Board. Use of facilities by private individuals or outside groups shall not be for private gain. This includes private educational activities for profit except in special circumstances which prove advantageous to the college. Use of facilities by business, industry, and other groups promoting economic development is deemed appropriate.

Religious Groups
Use of facilities for meetings which include religious topics and/or religious worship services is limited to activities primarily conducted for WITC students and staff, provided that such activities not be conducted on a regularly scheduled or continuing basis.

Political Groups/Candidates
Recognized political groups and candidates for public office are permitted to use College facilities provided the facilities are available. College procedures provide for one public meeting on behalf of each recognized candidate for public office during any election year. During a general election year, each political party may use WITC facilities for one public meeting on behalf of its candidates for national office and one public meeting for state office candidates. Such meetings should conform with the Open Meeting Laws and provide audience participants with the opportunity to ask questions and/or react at the conclusion of presentations.

The use of College facilities for solicitation of political contributions is strictly prohibited by state law.

The authorized use of College facilities for any non-college activity in no way constitutes an endorsement of the organization using the facilities nor the content of the programs or activities conducted.

Reservation request forms for facility usage are available at each WITC regional campus and the WITC College Administrative Office upon request.
