When an organization decides to sponsor a specific event open to the public, its representative will be required to meet with the director of Public Safety or designee and the vice president for student affairs or designee at least 14 days before their scheduled event occurs to plan for the event and arrange for police coverage.

4. All fire laws and policies will be observed including not blocking entrances or exits to the facilities used for the event.
