In order to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 and keep health and safety central for our campus community, Whittier College will limit and closely monitor all events, meetings, and activities that meet the conditions outlined in this policy.
We remain committed to supporting a rich and vibrant campus life while prioritizing safety. We are closely monitoring public health updates and will reconsider the event approval process when it is safe to do so.
This policy was updated on August 6, 2022
A Whittier College Event is an event, other than academic classes scheduled as part of the curriculum, that is held on campus property or off-campus but is officially sponsored by the College. All College events must be sponsored by an officially recognized Whittier College department or organization and must be in keeping with the College's mission.
There are separate procedures for events and activities that are student-centered or will be promoted to the student body and those that are not, such as administrative meetings or invitation-only events.
The procedures aim to address different aspects of event and activity planning: budget approval, COVID-19 compliance, space/facility reservation, and event promotion.
You will be required to upload VP approval confirmation in EMS.
Please direct questions to your Divisional Vice President or representative.
