The Special Events Board of Emporia State University affirms that, as a part of the university, it has the responsibility to provide for students and the university community additional educational experiences. The Board provides these educational opportunities through the performing and visual arts, as well as the historical support and funding, in part, of Family Day, Homecoming, and orientation. The Special Events Board considers requests for program funding from student organizations, university departments, and community groups. Furthermore, the Special Events Board offers students an opportunity to enjoy cultural events at a reduced rate or at no charge and is funded through student fees.
The Special Events Board provides bulletin boards in each building on campus for promoting specific events of recognized student organizations and university departments. Posters and/or fliers must be brought to the Center for Student Involvement for approval. Prior to printing posters or fliers, the original must be approved in the Center for Student Involvement for size and content which must include the complete name of the organization, date, time, Power E, and location of the event.
