COVID-19 Risk Review Process

University Activities, Events, and Experiences during COVID-19

Activities, events, and experiences ("requests") look and feel very different at the University during COVID-19. This is a time for us to be creative and identify non-traditional ways to carry out our mission and meet academic requirements. It's important to understand that most requests should be virtual to slow the spread and promote safety of our on and off campus communitites.

We must all take responsibility for understanding the risks associated with COVID-19 and promoting safety on campus.  Every one of us is a risk manager. As risk managers, this site provides you with the tools and resources you need to help guide your decisions within a COVID environment. For requests that fall outside of the Path Forward Health and Safety Guidelines and current safety measures and restrictions, a risk review process has been established. It is important to note that requests entered through the risk review process should be seen as an exception to the established guidelines and will be reviewed by the University's Risk Review Group and may be escalated up to the Executive Path Forward Task Force.

There are four steps to the Risk Review Process which are shown below. Any questions about the process should be sent to auditriskcompliance@udayton.edu

Please note, the risk review process is separate from requesting a space for an event/gathering/meeting and a travel request. These should be requested through the appropriate channels, see related links section below. Some requests for events, gatherings, and travel may require a risk review, in which case, the owners of these processes will refer you to this process for review and approval of your request. If your request needs escalation, your meeting space and travel will not be approved until the Risk Review Group or the Executive Path Forward Task Force approves your request through the exception process.

  • If you answered no to this question or the Health and Safety Guidelines, re-evaluate your plan for a virtual option or adapt plans to meet these requirements.
  • Does your request involve the use of on-campus laboratories, studio spaces, and classrooms where participants cannot wear face coverings and adhere to physical distancing guidelines, or that involves other added risks (e.g., use of shared equipment)? If yes, go to On Campus Laboratories, Studio Spaces, and Classrooms.
  • If your request does not meet the requirements set forth in the Health and Safety Guidelines and/or the Campus Status and Restrictions Review, you may also request an exception through the Risk Review Process
