Event Policy

Events are expected to comply with any continuing guidance for risk mitigation protocols. Event hosts are encouraged to include language about self-monitoring in all publicity. Face coverings are required in university facilities except while eating or drinking.

Beginning August 16, 2021

  • Consistent with classroom protocol, physical distancing is no longer required for events which do not include meals. 
  • Indoor events with meal service (ie: lunches and dinners) should remain at 3-foot distance between seats. 
  • Outdoor events should be planned with inclement weather in mind. Event hosts can either plan the event with the indoor capacity or choose a rain date in advance. The event host is responsible for any increased costs associated with the latter option. Event hosts should ensure venues are reserved for their rain location and/or date.

General Body meetings can be conducted in person or virtually. 

Meeting hosts who want any technical support will be expected to use TEAMS, Blackboard Collaborate or other University/School of Law approved platform.  If you would like your organization to have a TEAMS channel, please submit a ticket to the Division of IT.  We also recommend you use a smart podium to ensure all participants can see all aspects of the room.

Those who choose to use a non-approved platform do so at their own risk (i.e. security breaches, etc.) and will NOT be provided any technical support from the University/School of Law. 

Student organizations wishing to have an in-person component available for their meeting should contact Heather Beatty or Jacob Watters in Student Affairs. All other requestors can contact Bari Lasky.

Registration, attendance, and sign-in sheets are all recommended.

Guest speakers and panels can be hosted in person or virtually.

In person events involving campus visitors are strongly encouraged to include language about self-monitoring for sympoms in the event publicity. In person guest speakers and panels may offer coffee/tea/snacks at full capacity.

Virtual meeting hosts that want any technical support will be expected to use TEAMS, Blackboard Collaborate, or other University/School of Law approved platform.  Unless otherwise dictated by the presenter, the method of delivery MUST be a university approved platform. 

Horseshoe Catering/Aramark has the exclusive right to provide catering services on campus for all catering orders which total or exceed $500. Event guests are expected to follow all university protocols for Covid-19 mitigation. Event hosts are strongly encouraged to use individually boxed meals or buffets with sneeze guards.
