Event Planning Guide
At Oregon State University faculty and staff may be asked to plan a variety of events from small dinners to large receptions, as well as meetings, lectures and other celebrations. The talent, energy, and vision of the individuals in your unit have the ability to create events that contribute to the development of OSU as an inclusive and collaborative community. The participation in planning events are growth enhancing opportunities for individuals to develop skills in time management, team building, leadership, resource management and community building.
While navigating the links and information you will find elements that may or may not pertain to your event. Survey them all and select the ones that apply to you and your situation. Keep in mind that it is only a resource; the success of the event is dependent upon you and your organization.
