Planning a Program

Below is a tentative schedule of tasks to plan a program. Your program may not require all steps, but the preparation timeline is recommended for most programs planned by student clubs and organizations. Pay attention to bolded items - they include links to valuable information to guide you in your planning. If you are a club and need help planning your program, contact the Student Activities Office to set up a meeting. Halls should email Casey St. Aubin. Click here for more information regarding program planning.

Before you start, though, consider the purpose and mission of your organization. With any event, look to your group’s mission (which can be found in your group’s constitution) to make sure it fits within the scope of the group.
