Rule 3.2.1 Chain of Command
By permitting Sweepstakes Competitions to take place on its campus, Carnegie Mellon University accepts responsibility for those competitions and is thus authorized to take any actions necessary to ensure that those competitions are conducted in a manner that is as orderly and as safe as is possible. This responsibility is administered by the University through the Division of Student Affairs, the Dean of Student Affairs, the Department of Student Activities, and most directly, through the Sweepstakes Advisor.
At the student level, the responsibility for actually organizing, conducting, and supervising all activities related to the Sweepstakes Competitions is administered by all of the members of the Sweepstakes Committee, and most directly, by the Sweepstakes Chairman. The Sweepstakes Chairman has the responsibility of ensuring that all activities related to the Sweepstakes Competitions are conducted according to the rules, regulations, and procedures that have been approved by the University, through its representatives.
The link between the University and the student participants of the Sweepstakes Competitions is accomplished through the Sweepstakes Advisor and the Sweepstakes Chairman. The Sweepstakes Committee is directly accountable to the University through this link. During the actual organization and execution of the Sweepstakes Competitions, the Sweepstakes Chairman must work closely with the Sweepstakes Advisor in order to assure the University that the competitions are being conducted in an acceptable manner. In addition, the Sweepstakes Advisor can provide much advice, direction, and assistance to the Sweepstakes Chairman and other members of the Sweepstakes Committee concerning procedural and organizational aspects of the Sweepstakes Competitions.
When desired, the Sweepstakes Advisor, the Sweepstakes Chairman, and any of the members of the Sweepstakes Committee may seek opinions, advice, and assistance from the members of the Sweepstakes Advisory Council concerning any aspect of Sweepstakes related activities.
