Major Event Policy

As outlined in Policy 510-1 Section V.A. Policy on Major Events on campus, the specific criteria that identify a Major Event are as follows:

A Major Event includes an Event at which one or more of the following conditions apply:

(1)   The Event Sponsor anticipates over 100 persons are likely to attend; 

(2)   The event is a Dance, regardless of the number of anticipated attendees; or 

(3)   Alcohol is intended to be served at the Event.

In addition, the University has the authority to designate an Event to be a Major Event if it reasonably determines, based on the facts and circumstances, that more than 100 persons are likely to attend the Event or that the nature of the Event poses unusual security risks. If the University designates an Event as a Major Event, the University will give notice to the Event Sponsor and the Event Sponsor may contest that determination by submitting a written appeal in accordance with the appeals process specified in this policy.

We have developed a Major Events Protocol (MEP) system: a web-based application to collect required information for events that meet specific criteria and provide a presentation page to view and filter a listing of scheduled and past events.  The MEP system is hosted at this address:

As unit leaders, you are responsible for ensuring that all Major Events (as defined above) sponsored by your units are logged into the MEP system at least three weeks before the event is to occur. The MEP system will make the information about events available to campus offices that are responsible for safety, security, and other aspects of planning.
