In order to comply with State of Wisconsin statues pertaining to the handling of state money and to protect the student organization from potential financial conflict of interest, ushers are required for events when admission is charged. The Campus Activities and Recreation Office hires and trains ushers specifically in the areas of money handling, customer relations, conflict resolution, and event management. Usher requests must be made at least two weeks in advance and the form can be found online: http://www.uwsp.edu/centers/shoppingservices.
The University Centers will cover the cost of up to two ushers when student organization events are held in the Dreyfus University Center. Outside of the Dreyfus University Center, organizations will be charged for usher services at a rate of $9.00 per hour. The Campus Activities and Recreation Office reserves the right to refuse late requests and/or require additional ushers for safety purposes.
