Amendment approved at Faculty Meeting dated 2/24/99

In addition to official departmental uses, The Earle Ernst Lab Theatre is available primarily for classroom or working sessions and is assigned as per the LAB Theatre Scheduling and Use Policy. If requests for the space are for public showings of work, decisions will be based on availability, staffing, liability, and production season issues. When a request for a public showing can be accommodated in terms of availability, staffing, and liability, the final decision will rest with the full faculty.
