Planning an Event

Planning a successful event on or off campus can be quite complex, requiring coordination of many factors. To facilitate this process, the SBS Dean’s Office has created an Event Planning Guide with resources and recommendations related to the various aspects of event planning. 

Departments are responsible for planning their events. Please keep in mind accessibility in the planning process. However, if you're planning a high profile event, we may be able to help. Fill out our Event Planning Request Form – tell us all the information about your event, and we will follow up with you to help plan it. 

If you have any questions related to event planning, contact Saulo DePaula, Director of Analytics and Operations.
