TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – In an effort to keep Indiana State University students, faculty and staff safe, ISU has outlined additional guidelines that all student organizations must follow when hosting an in-person event or activity.
The guidelines state that registered student organizations must create an event on Treehouse, the student organization portal, for all sponsored in-person activities such as meetings and service. This applies to on-campus and off-campus activities. At least one of the student organization’s advisors of record, as approved by Campus Life or Fraternity and Sorority Life, must be in attendance for the student organization’s entire in-person event. This advisor is included in the total event attendance.
Exceptions to these student organization guidelines must be approved in advance by Office of Campus Life or Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. If these guidelines cannot be met, the student organization’s event must be virtual. When an event is held virtually, it is highly encouraged that participants utilize individual monitors, devices, or screens, avoid sharing equipment, and maintain social distancing when more than one person is in a shared space.
Current guidelines on face coverings and social distancing will continue for all in-person events. Any student or student organization in violation of these guidelines will be referred to Student Conduct and Integrity.
The Fall Event Planning COVID-19 Related Guidance for Large Events and Gatherings and the Temporary Student Directives for the Prevention of COVID-19 will remain in effect for all in-person activities. The moratorium announced Sept. 2 for fraternities and sororities on recruitment and new member activities has been lifted but student organizations are encouraged to hold events virtually.
