Media representatives are encouraged to inquire with the Public Information Officer prior to interviewing, photographing or videotaping employees or students. Media representatives must obtain prior approval before entering a class.

Individuals who refuse to leave will be considered trespassing and will be subject to arrest. NHCC shall not be held responsible for accidents or injuries to visitors who are in violation of NHCC policies.
Part 2. Minors on Campus
With the exception of minors and youth participating in an official NHCC program as stated in Visitors and Minors Policy 5.34, minors accompanying employees, students, or visitors of NHCC must be under the constant supervision of a responsible adult while on NHCC property, or on the site of any approved off-campus class or other NHCC event. Employees of NHCC cannot take supervisory responsibility for any unattended minors of employees, students, or visitors.
Minors accompanying employees, students, or visitors are not permitted in classes, labs, or other learning environments without the permission of the faculty member, unless they are participating in an official NHCC program as stated in the Visitors and Minors Policy 5.34. Minors accompanying employees, students, or visitors are not permitted to use computers or other technology resources when students need those resources for educational purposes. Minors accompanying employees, students or visitors are not permitted to use the Health and Wellness Center (HWC) facilities without permission from a faculty or staff member.
If minors, who are not participating in an official NHCC program per Policy 5.34, are left unattended and are disruptive or in distress, NHCC may notify law enforcement personnel and/or the Department of Social Services.
Employees may not bring their children, who are minors, to work during the employee’s work hours without prior permission from both their supervisor and Human Resources.
