Fall 2020 Event Approval

The guidelines for fall events, put forth by the Protect Purdue Implementation team, are part of the Protect Purdue Plan and were developed to help ensure the health and safety of the campus community.  It is important to note that these guidelines may be modified as the COVID-19 situation and corresponding federal, state and local guidance continues to evolve.

An overview of the guidelines can be found here.

According to the guidelines, all events with an anticipated attendance of 50 or more persons must receive approval from the Office of the Provost.

Procedures for academic events with more than 50 people present should also include the following:

  1. If you wish to plan such an event, prepare a request for approval containing: responsible party name and contact information, location-specific information, a safety plan describing adherence to all guidelines listed here or justification for any variations, and reasons why the event could not be handled remotely or through a series of smaller events. Events should avoid including outside visitors, if possible; if this is not possible, the request must also specify safety precautions relevant to the visitor(s). These requests will be reviewed by the instructional SOP review team and approved through the established approvals channel. Email requests to eventapproval@purdue.edu.
  2. Any such request needs to be endorsed by the relevant dean or appropriate area leader.

Please download and complete the appropriate PDF form below to request approval. 

Completed forms should be sent to: eventapproval@purdue.edu
