Speaking Engagement Request
All events sponsored by the President will be handled through the Coordinator of Special Events, located in the President's Office. The Coordinator of Special Events is responsible for annual and special events, along with the oversight of both campus and University-related public ceremonies. The Office of Special Events also serves as the campus resource for protocol. The Coordinator of Special Events may be reached via e-mail or at 814-732-1739.
Event sponsors will handle all other events. All sponsors are requested to notify the President's Office regarding the event in order that we may be aware of the event and assist with its planning, if required. An Event Planning Checklist is available to assist in the process.
Any event sponsors requesting the participation of the President are asked to contact the Coordinator of Special Events at 814-732-1739. While the President openly accepts a vast majority of invitations that are made, he may decline an invitation due to a calendar conflict; therefore, early action in scheduling is essential.
