Accessibility and Credit Guidelines
Events should be accessible to the entire student body.
Sponsors of CLP events should attempt to keep admission costs for students to a minimum. If an event’s price for Furman students exceeds $10, sponsors should explain in their proposal the reason for the added cost. Events primarily focused on fundraising will not be approved for CLP credit.
Awarding Performer/Production Credit
Students enrolled in courses noted on the academic transcript, which regularly involve performance or production of CLP events as a requirement for the successful completion of the course, will receive one CLP credit for each semester for which they are enrolled. These courses include but are not limited to forensics, music ensembles and theater productions.
A general audience should readily understand the subject matter and cultural significance of the CLP event. One should not have to be an expert in a subject to understand a CLP event.
The event should take place at a time and in a location that does not preclude attendance, considering student disabilities. Proposals should take into account the capacity of the hall or room for which an event is scheduled. No one will be permitted to enter an event once room capacity has been reached. Off-campus events may be held only if sponsored by a Furman University Sponsored Organization and meet the other CLP guidelines. Organizations will provide their own staff for CLP card distribution and collection, as no CLP workers will be asked to staff off-campus events.
Generally, events should not be held during typical class hours (8AM - 3PM). Events typically last 1-2 hours in order to facilitate students’ schedules. Regarding the academic calendar, only events occurring during summer, fall, and spring sessions may be proposed for CLP credit. CLP events will not be accepted during examination periods or less than one week before the last class date of the semester. Exception: One CLP event may be held each year during Orientation week, open to all students, which will serve as a sample program to introduce new students to the CLP requirement.
