Student Life Event Application

Fill out this form to request approval for a district-sponsored event. All events must be approved in advance and have an SRJC employee associated with the event. If you have any questions, please contact Genevieve Bertone at gbertone@santarosa.edu.


SRJC On-Campus Event Request Form (Staff)

Following is the process for On-Campus Event Request Forms (drive thru and in person):

  • On-Campus Event Requests are directed to Kate Lucas for Petaluma or Javier Rodriguez for all other District locations.
  • Send your request at least 10 working days in advance to allow for proper review.
  • On the Form, add your event name and department name, this makes tracking your request easier.
  • Once received your request goes from Kate or Javier to a review process where EH&S, District Police and Facilities evaluate such request to guarantee the safety of the students and staff coming to our campus.
    • Last minute or late requests affect this important part of the process because they don’t allow for enough time to review the forms.
    • We know there might be urgent situations where forms cannot be sent in the required time window but this shouldn’t be the norm.
    • Remember please that we are not dealing with typical events, safety is a very important factor to consider when reviewing your request.
    • Getting the requests in advance also gives Kate Lucas and Javier the opportunity to prevent conflicts with other activities happening in the college; not only events can conflict with these activities.
  • After Kate Lucas or Javier, EH&S, District Police and Facilities review the request it goes to the appropriate VP taking it to Cabinet for approval.
  • Giving the adequate time for review is very important especially for your VP since they will be advocating for your requests.
  • Kate Jolley sends us an email with the forms that got approved after every Cabinet meeting. As soon as we get the approved forms from her we notify the requester/s on record.  
  • A notification for all the events is created with additional information about activities in our District and sent to the different requesters on the week/s of their events. 

Procedures for Departments:

Departments will coordinate the volunteers, lockers and equipment drop off/check out within their department, i.e., departments will identify point people

It is required for volunteers to wear masks and gloves and offer hand sanitizer (EH&S and Student Life to provide if departments don’t have any)

Note: gloves and masks are valued commodities, so please use sparingly.

It is encouraged to use Burbank Circle at Santa Rosa and Academic Drive at Petaluma as a one-way drive through. Students and support system can stay in car; SRJC staff can retrieve/place items in trunk.

If you need to utilize a building to host this activity:

  • One entrance – students use hand sanitizer before entering
  • One exit – separate from entrance – students use hand sanitizer upon exiting
  • Doors propped open to promote social distancing
  • The number of people who enter are controlled upon people leaving
  • Social distancing encouraged within the line
  • Use signage – If your department doesn’t have A-frames, contact Student Life at (707) 527-4424 or srjcstudentlife@santarosa.edu
