The Office of University Events coordinates university-wide special events such as commencement ceremonies, groundbreakings, building dedications, etc.  As stated in the book, Etiquette and Protocol: A Guide for Campus Events, this office is responsible for “putting the institution’s best foot forward on public occasions.”

The staff offers assistance to on-campus departments for the planning, coordination and implementation of major events.  This office also serves as the “one-stop shopping” contact for community organizations wishing to conduct an event on campus. 

For campus departments organizing their own events, use the checklist available here to assist in your planning.
