Facility use shall be limited to places and time identified by each Vice President-Administrative Services/Associate Business Manager. Except as provided in these regulations, no organizations shall be denied the use of District facilities because of the content of the speech to be undertaken during the use.

Clovis Community College is committed to maintaining a safe campus of inclusion and equity for all. Clovis Community College does not endorse hate speech or anti-Semitic remarks,”
Dr. Lori Bennett, President, Clovis Community College.
