Are events planned for more than 25 people allowed at UMB?

October 1, 2021

UMB permits events over 25 with approval from a Dean or VP office. UMB requires approval from the Dean’s or VP’s office to confirm the proposed facilities and safety measures are adequate for the event. Prior to the start of the fall semester, UMB reviewed its classroom facilities and safety measures to confirm they were appropriate. Thus, additional approvals to hold classes are not required at this time.

UMB Student Affairs in collaboration with the schools is requiring student organizations to register their events using UMBengaged, an online student engagement platform. The online event registration process will ask students to consider a variety of risks associated with holding events, including, but not limited to, COVID-19 health safety considerations.
