Campuses are free to establish further limitations on events and conferences, as well as their own approval processes leading up to or following submission to the UERC.
Event organizers can apply for event approval of the UERC by submitting answers to the basic event information questions included on the form and uploading a specific event plan that addresses Guiding Principles and Event Considerations, contingency plans for cancellation or transition to a virtual format, and a proposed floor plan of the event space. This information will be reviewed by the UERC, comprised of university public health and safety officials, with a final determination made by the campus’s provost/chancellor or their delegate. The event organizer will be notified of the determination within 10 days of submission.
The Restart Implementation Task Force (RITF) has also requested that any events that are currently under consideration to be held in Fall 2020, be preliminarily submitted at this time. Although capacities, risk mitigation efforts, and venues may not be known, these events should be submitted through this process as “under consideration” on or before July 31. Once the specifics of these events are determined, the events should be submitted to the UERC for approval.
