  3. While material(s) will not be screened for a particular viewpoint, the Director of Student Life and Development shall deny any application if the proposed material(s) substantially disrupt the educational environment and/or the subject matter conveyed is patently offensive or obscene.  The student and/or recognized student group may appeal the Director of Student Life and Developments’ denial within five days to the Vice President for Student Services, whose decision shall be final.  In making his/her final determination, the Vice President for Student Services shall consult with the College Attorney as needed.
