This includes student and professional staff members in Student Involvement. Programs, services, and staff positions must directly benefit or serve the GGC student body and events and services must be free and open to all GGC students. This does not include ordinary or operational expenses of denominational or sectarian religious activities, partisan political activities, social fraternities and sororities, nor charitable causes or contributions.  Student activity fees cannot be used for the direct benefit of faculty, staff, or community members or for fundraisers, benefits, or registered student organization members-only field trips or events.
