Use for Religious Purposes

6.0 Use of Instructional Facilities for Religious Purposes. As a public entity, Clemson University is governed by State and Federal laws prohibiting both the establishment of any religion and discrimination against any individual or organization on the basis of religion. In accordance with these legal principles, Clemson University does not allow the use of its instructional facilities for any religious event or by any religious organization not officially recognized by the University. “Religious organizations” include traditional religious organizations of all denominations as well as any organization recognized as a charitable religious organization by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, including organizations which advocate atheism. This restriction does not apply to any faculty or student organization recognized by the University and which organization has a religious affiliation. These organizations may use any University instructional facility in accordance with the terms and conditions of this policy. Publicly available facilities may be used by religious groups, including University recognized organizations, subject only to the terms of this policy and any additional restrictions particular to that facility.
