Generally, Madison Area Technical College (“Madison College”) does not allow the use of alcohol or other intoxicants on college facilities. Students, employees, and visitors are prohibited from bringing alcohol or other intoxicants on campus or to college functions or events.

Madison College allows for limited, responsible use of alcohol on college facilities only under the following exceptions: 1) alcohol is used for instructional purposes, including use in the preparation and cooking of foods in the culinary arts program or for use in law enforcement training; and 2) alcohol is being served for special events where Madison College has granted a Special Event Permit to serve beer and/or wine on college district facilities. A written request must be submitted to the Vice President for Administration to be considered for obtaining a Special Event Permit.

Sponsoring groups will be responsible for being aware of and adhering to all applicable state laws, municipal ordinances, and Madison College procedures. Organizations sponsoring the event will assume all responsibility for damages to the facility and shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Madison College from any and all losses, injuries, damages, liabilities, claims, lawsuits, judgments, and/or legal expenses including attorney fees arising either directly or indirectly from the serving of beer and/or wine. Permission to serve beer and/or wine on Madison College facilities in no way implies that Madison College promotes the use of alcohol or will assume any liability for loss, damage, or injury resulting from the serving of beer and/or wine.
