Are background checks required?

Programs, events, and camps serving minors must perform background checks on all staff dealing directly with underage populations. PECs will be asked to certify that they have indeed done so with a reputable background check vendor and may be audited to ensure compliance. For more information, visit Mason’s background investigations page.

Are parking services available?

Programs, Events, and Camps hosting off-campus visitors need to arrange for the visitors’ parking needs. Moreover, if a PEC will be using buses or drop off and pickup points for PEC attendees at Mason, they must coordinate these efforts through Parking Services. A Special Event Validation Request is available here.

What resources are provided by Environmental Health and Safety?

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) offers several resources, including the Temporary Structure Guide and Temporary Structure Permit Application, that allows events to set up tents, stages and other temporary structures. They offer fire extinguisher training, crowd management guidance, and have an approval process for those PECs that need EHS to approve their PEC.
