Event Planning

Simple - No Funding, No Food

Are you planning an event that does not require funding or food?  Perhaps you want to offer a workshop or a discussion and invite the campus to attend.  Or, maybe you want a table to raise awareness for an event or a club or a cause on campus.  Events that do not require any funding are simple to plan and promote and allow students, faculty and staff an opportunity to engage and connect.

First, discuss your idea with your Supervisor or Division Chair.  They may have additional ideas or connections to help make your idea a success.  Also work with your Supervisor or Division Chair to determine what, if any, additional approval is required before moving forward with planning your event.

When considering the date/time/location for your event, visit the common calendar to determine a few date/time options that do not conflict with other campus and/or academic events.  Work with your presenter to determine the best date possible for both the presenter and the campus. Then, use 25Live to schedule the space, include your request for facility and/or audiovisual setups as well as any additional public safety needs.

And finally, promote your event!
