Engaging Guest Artists Procedure
Guest Artists are engaged by schools/divisions to offer enhancements to the student learning experience. Typical guest artist activities generally occur outside the classroom setting.
Some examples include:
- Presenting a Master Class or lecture
- Choreographing a dance piece
- Directing a play
- Instruction in a specialized technique/skill
Guest Artists can be engaged by various methods (i.e., independent contractor, honorarium, hosted by school/division). Contact Financial Affairs (if using State funds) or Foundation (if using Foundation funds) for procedures to pay Guest Artists as independent contractors, pay an honorarium, or pay for travel expenses.
No matter the method, a Notification of Guest Artist Engagement must be filed with Academic Affairs at least two weeks prior to the Guest Artist’s arrival on campus. Schools/divisions should give additional consideration to time requirements for criminal background checks as described below.
Criminal Background Check & Policy Acknowledgement
UNCSA requires a satisfactory criminal background report and signed Policy Acknowledgement for Guest Artists with unsupervised student contact prior to engaging in services. Unsupervised student contact is defined as student contact during which a current UNCSA employee will not be present. Guest Artists may not have unsupervised student contact until cleared by Academic Affairs.
Criminal background reports can take up to three weeks to complete. See Procedure for Engaging Guest Artists for more information.
