377.8 Use of Furman Facilities by Off-Campus Religious Organizations

 

A. Background

Furman is committed to the free exercise of religion by every member of the campus community. It does not, however, have a legal or moral obligation to provide facilities for every off-campus group that may apply, especially for those that merely wish to use the campus to recruit Furman students for their particular cause.

 

B. Policy

Off-campus religious groups seeking permission to use Furman facilities must be approved by the University Chaplain.

 

C. Guidelines

1. All requests must be in writing and must be submitted to the appropriate facility supervisor.

2. The facility supervisor will forward a copy of all requests from religious groups to the Chaplain's office for review.

3. Responsibility to grant exceptions to this policy rests with the President of the University.
