For faculty, staff, students and visitors: Safety is a primary concern for KPC and we take every possible precaution to ensure the welfare of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. The majority of our facilities are not designed for occupancy by children. To ensure safety and maintain productivity of our employee and student population, the following guidelines apply when bringing children on campus, whether it is inside campus facilities or anywhere on campus property:
1. A child may not be left unattended while the parent or guardian is working, attending class or conducting any other business or social function on campus;
2. A parent or guardian must maintain line of sight supervision at all times, including the campus grounds;
3. Children are not allowed in high-risk areas such as: laboratories, shops, studios and cannot play in stairwells, elevators or doorways. They are not permitted to run through any areas to include the commons, hallways, classrooms or any other area inside the facility.
4. Children should not interfere with workplace activities or be disruptive in any campus area.
Should a child become disruptive, the parent or guardian and child may be asked to leave.
In accordance with University of Alaska regulation, 05.12.102, KPC's campuses prohibit smoking and the use of all tobacco and tobacco-related products, including smokeless tobacco and electronic/vaporized nicotine delivery systems:
- Within all KPC real property, buildings and vehicles;
- On all KPC-owned outdoor spaces including but not limited to: grounds, walkways, trails, recreational areas, parking lots, sidewalks and streets;
- During all events held at KPC.
Notable exclusions to the policy include tobacco use:
- Within personally owned vehicles;
- On public sidewalks or public right-of-ways that border one of KPC's campuses;
- Via a non-combustible, FDA-approved tobacco cessation or harm reduction medication (i.e. nicotine replacement patches, gum, lozenges, nasal spray).
Pets are not permitted in any KPC facilities. Students experiencing disabilities need to contact Disability Support Services at the campus they are attending for the approval process to bring service animals into classrooms, common areas or other KPC inside facilities. Any animals outside the buildings must be on a leash, in a cage or under some form of physical constraint. Pets are not to be tied to trees or other objects on campus.
It is recommended that pets not be left in vehicles due to the potential danger it poses to them. If a pet is left in a pickup or truck bed, they must also be restrained on a leash attached to the truck or in a cage. Excessive barking or other animal behavior that may be disruptive to students or those using KPC facilities will lead to the owner having to remove the animal from KPC property.
KPC, along with various representatives of the media, take photos and videotapes of students and visitors throughout the year. These photographs often include students and visitors in classrooms, study areas, the library, commons areas, outside the buildings, and at special events. KPC reserves the right to use these photographs as a part of its publicity and marketing efforts. Students who enroll at KPC and people who visit the campus do so with the understanding that these photographs might be used in college publications, both printed and electronic, and for publicity purposes.
KPC is a venue where many voices can be heard and many perspectives debated. The college believes the establishment of clear guidelines for working with off-campus groups helps facilitate and maximize the free speech experience and respect of diversity and all it encompasses at KPC. The policy applies to recognized off-campus groups that desire, on KPC property, to advocate a position or provide information on a service or product. Unlike groups that reserve classrooms for meetings, these groups desire to share information about their group, the position they support on an issue(s) or product/service their organization provides. Their goal is to increase support for their group, cause, product, or service and to provide this information through brochures, pamphlets and one-on-one dialogue with students, faculty, staff and campus visitors. These groups include non-profit and for profit groups and businesses. The complete policy is available at the KPC website or from the director’s office.
