Wagner College Events & Scheduling

Fall 2020 Meeting & Event Scheduling

During the Fall 2020 semester it is recommended that 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 automatically-generated and emailed upon approval. If you haven’t received your approval at least 48-hours prior to the event start, contact lifelong-learning@wagner.edu.
  4. Policies related to specific locations:
    • Faculty Dining Room: This space will be closed until further notice.
    • Residence Hall Lounges: For Fall 2020 there will be no “non-residential students” permitted in any Residence Hall spaces including D3 Annex, Guild Lounge and Manzulli Board Room, the only exception being Gatehouse Lounge for credit classes being taught in the room.
    • 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.
  5. 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.

If you wish to have your event published on the Wagner Calendar of Events site please pay special attention to the area highlighted in red in the image above.

Select the time of your event. If this is a single date use the first tab, if is a recurring date use the second tab, and if it spanning a 24-hour plus period of time use the third tab. Hit create. See image below Step 5.

Note: Meeting Time and Uploading Event to the Wagner Newsroom Calendar
If you are planning on listing your event on the Wagner Newsroom calendar it is best that your primary meeting reflects the actual start and end time of the event for which you are expecting attendance. For example, if your event is from 7pm – 9pm, your initial meeting time should reflect that time as well. If you anticipate needing time to set-up for your event or break-down afterwards then create separate meetings using the Meeting Type “Event Set-up” or “Event Break-down”. Meetings coded as set-up or break-down will not appear on the Newsroom calendar.
 

Select the meeting date you wish to assign a room for. Hit assign rooms.

Date Restrictions:
1. Events being requested with less than 48 hours notice will not be permitted by the system.
2. Event requests during a future semester can not be fulfilled until the credit schedule has been uploaded.
