Please note this policy may change to comply with public health guidance from the CDC, State of California, or the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
We remain committed to supporting a rich and vibrant campus life while prioritizing safety as part of our Moving Forward plan. We are closely monitoring public health updates and will reconsider the event approval process when it is safe to do so.
A Whittier College Event is an event, other than academic classes scheduled as part of the curriculum, that is held on campus property or off-campus but is officially sponsored by the College. All College events must be sponsored by an officially recognized Whittier College department or organization and must be in keeping with the College's mission.
There are separate procedures for events and activities that are student-centered or will be promoted to the student body and those that are not, such as administrative meetings or invitation-only events.
The procedures aim to address different aspects of event and activity planning: budget approval, COVID-19 compliance, space/facility reservation, and event promotion.
You will be required to upload VP approval confirmation in EMS.
Please direct questions to your Divisional Vice President or representative.
