Who approves a university-sponsored event during summer?

For Schools, Colleges and Divisions
Units within schools, colleges, and divisions may host meetings and events as long as they follow this campus policy and the CDC guidelines. This applies to all sponsored programs, activities, meetings, and gatherings, regardless of their location on or off university property.

Events and meetings that are deemed critical to the university’s mission, but that have aspects which fall outside of this campus policy or CDC guidelines (e. g. health protocols, etc.) require approval from the sponsoring unit’s Vice Chancellor, Academic Dean, or Research Center Director.

Vice Chancellors, Academic Deans, and Research Center Directors should designate who in their units may approve exceptions for events and meetings of connected student groups (e. g. student advisory boards) but that are not Registered Student Organizations (RSOs).

Vice Chancellors, Academic Deans, and Research Center Directors may establish their own more restrictive policy for their units and the spaces that they manage.

For Registered Student Organizations
Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) may host events so long as they follow this campus policy and CDC guidelines. This applies to all sponsored programs, activities, meetings, and gatherings, regardless of their location on or off university property.

RSO events and meetings that are deemed critical to the university’s mission, but that have aspects which fall outside of CDC guidelines (e. g. health protocols, etc.) require approval from Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (or designee). This process can be completed by creating an event for the organization in the Wisconsin Involvement Network (WIN).

Student groups that are not RSOs but who are connected to a school, college, or division (e.g. student advisory board) must have any event exceptions approved by their respective Vice Chancellor, Academic Dean, or Research Center Director.

Vice Chancellors, Academic Deans, and Research Center Directors may establish their own more restrictive policy for their units and the spaces that they manage.
