Student Organizations and University Units

The Lectures Program staff advises student organizations and university units about arrangements for visiting scholars, artists, performers, public officials, and professionals on a wide range of topics.

However, funding assistance can only be obtained by a university-recognized student organization. 

University units may reserve spaces on campus themselves or have the Lectures Program staff make reservations using the Lectures account.

Lectures Program staff assist with:

  • researching speakers and topics
  • scheduling and room reservations
  • negotiating fees
  • fundraising and identifying cosponsors
  • publicity assistance
  • room setups
  • book signings, with onsite sales through the University Book Store
  • technical and audio-visual arrangements
  • taping services
  • reception and catering arrangements
  • accounting and paperwork
