Scheduling Off-Campus Events

Saint Xavier University encourages learning to take place in all aspects of Student Life. The University, through the Student Activity Fund (SAF), supports co-curricular learning through the sponsorship of events and programs designed to enhance Student Life and create a more vibrant campus atmosphere. In order to maintain a fair and equitable opportunity to enjoy events on campus, support for off-campus events held by student organizations will be very limited and requests for sponsorship of off-campus activities will be very critically reviewed.

Alcohol Risk Management Procedures for Student-Sponsored Events at Which Alcohol is Served

As a recipient of federal aid and federal grants, the University must certify that it will take certain steps to provide a drug-free workplace in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989. The possession, use, consumption, sale, dispensation, distribution or manufacture of alcohol or controlled substances is prohibited on University property while conducting University business or as part of University-sponsored activities, except on those occasions when the moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages in a social setting is authorized and sponsored by the University.

All members of the University community are responsible to be aware of applicable Illinois law and Chicago ordinances that pertain to the serving, consumption and sale of alcohol. In particular, Illinois law prohibits the consumption or possession of alcohol by individuals under the age of 21, as well as the supplying of alcohol to any individual under the age of 21. Further, alcoholic beverages will not be served at any University-sponsored event at which undergraduates are present unless prior written approval has been obtained from the vice president for Student Affairs or other appropriate University official. Student organizations that seek authorization to serve alcoholic beverages at University-sponsored events must work with the Office of Student Affairs to ensure that those assigned to serve alcohol have been authorized by the University to do so.

Those individuals and/or student organizations found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action, consistent with local, state and federal law and in accordance with University-approved sanctions.

The following guidelines apply to all University-sponsored events, no matter if they occur on or off campus.
