Student Events and Gathering Phased Plan
(In compliance with DOH, NYS, and CDC)
Phase 1: 8/31/20-9/20/20
In-person student organization events will be on hold from 8/31 through 9/20. For guidance with on-campus cultural and religious observances during this time frame, please contact Student Life at firstname.lastname@example.org. During this time, registered student organizations and Moderate-risk/Lower-risk club sports can develop and submit their plans for small-group activities that adhere to NYS group-size limits and the CDC and NYS guidelines. These plans must be submitted to Student Life by 9/14 (template provided by Student Life) in order to host small-group events. These plans will be reviewed by Student Life and Scheduling and Events from 9/15 through 9/20.
Registered student organizations may host events as long as they comply with the institution’s current safety measures and policies, and the proposed plan has been approved by Student Life. Failure to adhere to the submitted plan and NYS and CDC guidelines and comply with the institution's current safety measures and policies may result in revocation of registration or other sanctions consistent with the college’s Student Code of Conduct. Approved plans for events and gatherings may begin starting 9/21. Registered student organizations planning small-group events and gatherings will need to meet with Student Life to review and confirm proper precautions to help protect against the spread of COVID-19.
