Policy 48

University of Wisconsin-Parkside
Campus Event Admission Policy
Policy #48

It is the philosophy of the University Administration that University funds and segregated fees should be used to support events which further the educational and cultural mission of the University, provide opportunities for social growth and cultural understanding, and serve the recreational needs of the campus community. Therefore, the admissions policy reflects the expectation that the campus community will be the primary audience at campus events.

Following are the University expectations for admission to campus events. The sponsoring organization may choose to narrow the audience further (for example, only admit students) if they feel it is more appropriate for their event.

Films (without alcoholic beverages)

Admission may be open to students, guests of students (up to three per student), and others 18 and over, (if under 18 they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).

If the scheduled movie is controversial, or has a record of causing problems, security may be required.

Dances (without alcoholic beverages)

Admission may be open to students and their guests (up to three per student) who are 18 years or older.

If the event is intended as an outreach activity, admission may be open to any college student with a valid college I.D. OR to the community--persons who are 18 or older.

Dances: Alcoholic Beverages Segregated

Admission may be open to students and their guests (up to three per student) who are 18 years or older.

If the event is intended as an outreach activity, admission may be open to any college student with a valid college I.D.

Dances: Alcoholic Beverages Not Segregated

Admission may be open to students and their guests 21 years and older (up to three per student).

Performing Arts and Lectures

Admission may be open to all, unless the nature of the material presented is appropriate for an adult audience, in which case only those who are 18 and over or with a parent will be admitted.

Comedians, Concerts, Special Events: Alcoholic Beverages Available

Admission may be open to students and their guests 21 years and older (up to three per student).

Comedians, Concerts, Special Events: No Alcoholic Beverages

Admission may be open to students and their guests who are 18 years or older (up to three per student). Guests under 18 may attend programs if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Athletic Events

Admission is open to all.

Requests for Broader Audiences

Requests for a broader audience should be made to the Student Center Director and Director of Student Activities at least four weeks prior to the date of the event. Consideration will be given to events that are outreach and/or cultural in nature. The UW-Parkside Events Security Policy will be used to determine appropriateness of holding the event on campus and the level of security needed for the event.

At the request of the sponsoring organization, appeals may be made to the Event Admissions Committee.

Definitions/Examples:

Outreach Activities: Activities specifically designed to reach out to specific segments of the greater community for a specified purpose. Examples may include an event coordinated with the Admissions Office to target prospective students. These events should relate to the mission of the University and the sponsoring organizations.

Cultural Programming: Events which meet the University's goals of promoting understanding of diversity and multiculturalism. An example may include a traditional ethnic band performance, with the audience including the community at large.

Organizations requesting a broader admission policy based on either of these reasons should be prepared to justify the request.
