Protocol & Etiquette

Planning events in the world of academia requires a balance of protocol, tradition, and the occasional costume. As event planners, we have the opportunity to provide unparalleled customer service and an unforgettable experience for every event guest. You may on occasion, find your unit or department hosting VIP guests that require a certain level of recognition or ceremony. Below are some campus resources to contact early for help in the invitation process and when hosting your event.
