Wagner College Events & Scheduling
COVID Related Scheduling Policies
The policy outlined below has been created in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the efforts the College is taking to mitigate a spread of the virus on campus. It is evolving and will be adjusted as needed.
Note: All student organization events are governed by the policies set by Student Engagement and Activities. All questions and requests should be directed to their office at email@example.com or by visiting https://wagner.presence.io/.
Spring 2021 Meeting & Event Scheduling
For the start of the Spring 2021 semester, it is recommended that the campus community plan mostly virtual events.
If you are planning on holding a virtual-only event during this time and would still like it to be published to the https://wagner.edu/newsroom/events/ and Daily Bulletin, you can submit a request via AdAstra and deselect the “Requires Room” box in the Event Meetings section of the AdAstra event request form. Be sure to include directions on how to register for the virtual session in the Event Details section whether that be through Zoom Event Registration or via email to the Event Organizer.
When virtual meetings are not an option students, staff and faculty can request in-person meetings and events following the policies outlined below.
Events Between 2/8 and 2/28
In-person activities during the first two weeks of classes, where most classes will still be remote, will only be approved if they are:
- Essential to the delivery of an academic program approved by the Provost’s Office to meet in-person, or
- A meeting for an athletic team competing during the Spring semester
In both cases, meetings must not exceed 50 or the capacity of the space, whichever is the lower of the two numbers.
Events Between 3/1 and 3/14
During the first two weeks of in-person classes, meetings including student organizations and department programming will be permitted following the guidelines outlined below:
- No non-Wagner visitors will be permitted on campus without approval from the Vice President responsible for oversight of the department hosting the event. Permission must be sought in writing and guest information must be entered in the new campus visitor management system, Envoy. Visitors must acknowledge that they accept the terms for entering campus. For access, training or information on Envoy, contact the IT Help Desk. All campus visitors MUST enter at the guard’s booth to check in with security prior to entering campus.
- Non-Wagner visitors are defined as: parents, guests, guest speakers, alumni, vendors, campus recruiters and/or local community members, who are not normally on campus at least one day per week during consecutive weeks and are not also a commuter or residential student, staff or faculty subject to testing protocols.
- There are new maximum capacities for campus spaces. These new capacities have been updated in AdAstra and are also available to view below. All requests for space MUST include the expected in-person attendance in the request form. Any requests with an expected in-person attendance exceeding the capacity for the space will be declined. During the event, it is the responsibility of the person requesting/hosting the event to ensure that maximum capacity is not exceeded.
- No meetings/events/rehearsals will be permitted to start before 8am or run past 10pm. Public Safety will follow this schedule for the opening of buildings and locking at night. Anyone using spaces outside of these times will be escorted out of the building. Rooms will remain locked when not in use. Public Safety will ONLY open a space if the individual requesting for the room to be unlocked has their confirmation in-hand and the meeting information matches details supplied to Public Safety.
- Event confirmations are emailed upon approval. If you haven’t received your approval at least 48-hours prior to the event start, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Policies related to specific locations:
- Faculty Dining Room: This space will be closed until further notice.
- Residence Hall Lounges: For Spring 2021 there will be no “non-residential students” permitted in any Residence Hall spaces including D3 Annex, Guild Lounge and Manzulli Board Room. Gatehouse Lounge is temporarily closed due to construction in Harborview. In addition, for the first two weeks from 3/1 – 3/14 of in-person classes this will also apply to commuter students and residents of other residence halls, for example residents of Harborview will not be permitted in Towers.
- Outdoor spaces: A maximum of 50 people will be permitted to gather at outdoor locations as per NYS guidelines.
- Union Atrium: Until further notice, there will be no events permitted in the Union Atrium or “tabling” spaces in the Student Union. A maximum of two tabling events at one time will be permitted around Trautmann Square or the Oval.
In addition to the rules listed above, all campus events and meetings must:
- Ensure that all students, faculty, staff and approved visitors in attendance are wearing appropriate face coverings and practicing social distancing.
- Assist in cleaning by using the products provided in the space to wipe down any surfaces used. Please help us in reporting if these products have been depleted by contacting Campus Operations.
- The event organizer must record attendance for each meeting and be able to produce attendance records upon request for the purposes of contact tracing.
As the semester progresses, the policies above may be revisited to increase capacities, re-open certain locations, and begin permitting public attendance at events as local circumstances improve.
