Illinois State University will strive to produce television programming reflective of its educational mission. No programming, except the news and public affairs programming originated by the University, will give air to specific religious sectarian issues, partisan political issues or parties, or pseudo political causes. A11 programming will be subject to FCC regulations, program guidelines of the NAB, and individual, internal University production agency policies, guidelines and procedures.
There are three programming/production agencies, for on or off campus program distribution, functioning within the University.
The University sees the local cable television company as the agency responsible for community programming. But the University will consider programming requests for transmission outside the University in accordance with the following procedure: A request in written detail along with a cover letter indicating TeleCable approval will be submitted to the TV Programming Board at least two months prior to the proposed date of distribution. Requests will be evaluated on the basis of general University programming guidelines. Any programming in this category will also be subject to normal production costs and studio availability.
If a programming request is approved, the finished production will be viewed by the TV Programming Board to assure that it conforms to the original request and meets the usual production and technical standards.
If a programming request is denied, written notification will be given, in which case, the decision of the TV Programming Board can be appealed to the Dean of Academic Services.
