UW statement on planned YAF event

October 5, 2017

UPDATE (12:18 p.m. Oct. 6): The Center for the Study of Liberal Democracy has joined this event as a co-sponsor, enabling it to be open to the general public.

UW-Madison released the following statement in response to media and social media questions Thursday.

“UW-Madison is expecting YAF’s event with Katie Pavlich to be held as planned.

Registered Student Organizations at UW–Madison have the ability to reserve space and hold events that are open to the university community of students, faculty and staff.

For events to be opened to the general public, they require sponsorship by a department.

This long-standing policy is shared with organizations every year.

Should the organizers of this event wish to open it to the public, they may still seek an additional sponsor ahead of the event.”
