High Profile Events

How do I schedule a Dean-on-Call or Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call for my event?

Fill out the Dean-on-Call/Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call Request Form, or attend a bi-weekly high-profile events meeting. At the meeting, brief reviews are conducted of all high-profile events scheduled to occur in the upcoming weeks. During this meeting, the decision may be made to schedule an Event Review, which is a meeting with all stakeholders that is dedicated to discussing your specific event in more detail. Contact Cassie Kramer for more information at cnkramer@uchicago.edu

How much notice should I give to schedule a Dean-on-Call or Sexual Assault Dean-on-Call?

The more notice you can provide the better, however five to seven days is ideal. We understand that advance notice is not always possible and will do our best to fulfill all last-minute staffing requests.
