Entertainment, Attractions and Lectures
To protect students from legal liability, all official arrangements with artists, entertainers, lecturers, agencies, etc., are made by the Campus Activities and Recreation Office (CARO). If your organization wishes to contract with someone to present a program on campus you must:
- Pick up a pre-contract worksheet from CARO prior to your discussion
with the artist/lecturer OR go on-line at http://www.uwsp.edu/centers/caro.
- Contact artist/lecturer and answer as many questions as possible on
the front side of the pre-contract worksheet.
- Return the pre-contract worksheet to CARO. Once the worksheet
has been completed, the CARO arranges for an official contract with
the artist/lecturer. (The pre-contract worksheet is not an official
contract.) Upon receiving a signed official contract from the artist
lecturer, the CARO will arrange for payment by check, to be picked
up by your organization the day of the program. (If your program
occurs on a Saturday or Sunday, please pick up the check on the
Friday prior to the event.)
Legally, no UW-Stevens Point student can negotiate, ask for, or sign the artist/lecturer service contract. This should be done by a University official (specifically, the Campus Activities and Recreation Office, 340 DUC, 346-4343.) Arrange your program entertainment at least six weeks before the program to ensure time to get the check for the night of the event. It reflects poorly on your organization if you can’t pay the artist/lecturer
on the date of the program.
To make arrangements to show a film/video, contact Campus Activities and Recreation. Current listings and costs of movies/films are available upon request in the CARO. Please make your movie arrangements at least six weeks prior to the showing to ensure enough time for the paper work.
- Note: It is a violation of copyright law to show films/videos for a public
performance without permission and/or without payment of public
performance fee. Any exhibition of an entertainment movie outside
the privacy of a home setting is considered a public performance. If
you plan to show a movie, your organization will need to contract for
its use. Please see the following site for more details on this topic:
