Many KPC policies and procedures are set at UAA. Click the links below to review the following general public-related policies and procedures within UAA's master catalog.
(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:
Should a child become disruptive, the parent or guardian and child may be asked to leave. Employees of KPC are required to report any unattended children in vehicles parked in the KRC parking lot, in campus buildings, or anywhere else on the property.
The staff or faculty who is witness to such an incident should do the following:
The Student Services Director will compile any other necessary information and will draft an incident report to be sent to the State of Alaska Office of Children’s Services at email@example.com with a copy to Doug Markussen, UAA Director Environmental Health and Safety/Risk Management Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
KPC will immediately notify the Soldotna or Homer Police Department and the State of Alaska Office of Children’s Services.
For more information on application of the KPC Policy for Children on Campus, please contact Gary J. Turner, College Director, Room 183B, McLane Building, or phone 262-0315.
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:
Notable exclusions to the policy include tobacco use:
Pets are not permitted in any KPC 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. If the owner cannot be located, the local police will be notified.
Service animals and Assistance animals are allowed on campus.
A Service Animal is a dog (or in some cases a miniature horse) that has been trained to perform tasks or do work for an individual with a disability. These individuals may bring their service animals with them anywhere the individuals normally go.
Service animals are not required to wear a vest, ID tag, or specific harness. In situations where it is not obvious that an animal is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions:
Inquiry beyond these two questions is not allowed, and staff may not request any documentation for the animal, require that the animal demonstrate a task, or inquire about the nature of the person’s disability.
An Assistance Animal is similar to a service animal in that they can perform tasks for individuals with a disability, provide support, or alleviate symptoms. However, assistance animals do not have to be professionally trained and are not considered service animals as defined by the ADA.
When a student, employee, or visitor with a disability wants to use an assistance animal (sometimes also referred to as an emotional support animal) on campus, a request for accommodation must be made in advance through Disability Support Services.
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.
