Major University Events
Major university events are distinguished as those events that are hosted by the Office of the President, call for the president to play a significant role or extend an invitation to the UWG Board of Visitors, the president, the provost, the vice president for university advancement or other university dignitaries.
These events can also include ceremonies sponsored by departments or divisions that have a university-wide focus or invite different cross sections of the university community. In fact, a few examples of major university events include the Presidential Scholarship Gala and the Inauguration of Dr. Kyle Marrero as the university’s seventh president, and many more.
