The Office of Special Events

The Office of Special Events supervises and directs the planning and coordination of special events for the Office of the President, selected events requested by the vice president for advancement involving University donors, events hosted by the board of trustees, groundbreaking, naming and dedication events, and selected major University-wide events.
Depending on the nature of the event, the Office of Special Events team will assist and advise on event protocol, cost and budget management, program design, conception and production, logistical coordination, facility use and design, and event promotion.
In addition, the Office of Special Events is responsible for advising the Presidential Ambassadors, purchasing custom and specialized gifts for guests, sponsors, and donors, and reviewing table purchases or sponsorships for various community or external events.
The Office of Special Events is located in the beautiful Peterson House at the corner of W. Bancroft and Drummond Road. Due to the increased volume of guests parking at the Peterson House, we ask that you refer to this map for parking accommodations.
