POLICY: VISITORS IN UNIVERSITY CLASSROOMS

Albany State University (herein after called the University) seeks to provide a wholesome learning environment that is professional and free from distraction. Therefore, the University allows only persons who are enrolled, invited or authorized to its classrooms or other services. Time spent attending to a personal visitor, especially a child, distracts from the learning environment. University classrooms are not a substitute for day care centers, and personal liability issues regarding children and other unauthorized visitors do not allow the University to permit unauthorized visitors or children in classrooms. This restriction on children and other persons does not apply to attendance at public University functions, as family members are always welcome at public activities on campus, such as graduation or nurse pinning ceremonies.
