- Large Crowd
- Student Organizations and the University Reputation
- Financial Responsibility
What is considered a “high risk activity”? All events/activities that include, but are not limited to:
- Physical or Recreational activity
- Concerts, Dances
- Food and/or Alcohol
- Children participating
- Off campus performers
- “Hot Topics” that have potential to bring in an opposing viewpoint
- Motor Vehicles
- Water activity
- Structure building
When does the size of the crowd create potential for risk?
- Potential to reach the venues capacity
- Outdoor events
- Exceeds the number of participants planned for
How do I take care of the reputations of yourself, your club and your community?
- Always ask the questions: Is this in line with my own personal beliefs and the mission of my organization and the university. Are the outcomes of my actions, activities, events just?
How do I determine what is reasonable financial risk for my club, for my service providers?
- What % of our budget is being utilized for this event/activity? If we are unable to recoup the expenditures through an admission charge what is the plan to pay for service provided.
