Event Tech Crew update (Neumann, Lyceum, Chapel, etc.)

Because of the vacancy in the Production Manager position, tech support for events on campus is being handled by the student crew. With the number of events they cover, it is important to understand the service level expectation for that area. Please have all requests for tech support at events submitted at least three weeks ahead of the event to guarantee student staff coverage. No changes for tech support requirements will be accepted less than two weeks from the start of the event. To avoid miscommunication, messages should not be sent directly to student managers, except during the actual event.

To secure the requested space(s) on campus, please contact the Event Planning Manager directly at kayla.seppelt@wartburg.edu.

Please send any questions or requests for tech support directly to the newly created email events.techcrew@wartburg.edu

OSHA vaccine/testing mandate update

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration withdrew its vaccination and testing emergency temporary standard effective Jan. 26. OSHA is putting focused effort on finalizing a permanent COVID-19 Health Standard, but that will take some time to be developed and approved. For now, we will continue to encourage all students, faculty, and staff to get vaccinated if they can and to continue wearing face masks indoors in accordance with Wartburg policies.
