Scheduling & Event Operations

The Scheduling & Event Operations staff is committed to providing exceptional services and facilities, as well as scheduling and event planning services for the campus and community. The Office is located on the main level of the Surbeck Center behind the main desk.

They work with students, staff, and faculty, as well as the community, to ensure optimum use of the Surbeck Center and other general use spaces of the university. The Scheduling & Event Operations office coordinates the use of university facilities and associated personnel, services, and equipment to support academic, student, community, and professional activities on campus.

They ensure that Surbeck Center generates revenue to support building operations. All scheduling of campus resources for meetings and events begins and ends with Scheduling & Event Operations.
