  • How do I get my event promoted on the University Events Calendar?

    Please start by filling out the appropriate event submission form located on the University Event Calendar webpage.

    • There are two calendar submission forms, one for individuals submitting an event using a first.last@unco.edu email address, the other for individuals submitting an event using a Bearmail (@bears.unco.edu) email address.

    From there, the designated Communications Specialist within your area or University Advancement will review your submission to ensure all details are included.

  • Who reviews and approves University Event Calendar submissions?

    After completing the form, it will be directed to the dedicated marketing and communications specialist in your college/department/unit for review. Communications specialists will then either approve your event or request additional clarifying details within 24-48 hours.

  • What information is needed for submission?
    1. Topic: The event content must be directly related to the University and must not contain any commercial advertising, religious or political editorials, or solicitations. Messages must be free of slander, obscenities, and other material that may be considered unlawful.
    2. Content: Messages should be concise, but all messages must include a date, time, entry fees (if applicable), location, sponsor, and brief description of the event. University Advancement reserves the right to edit submissions for clarity and/or length.
    3. Style: Messages should be checked for spelling, grammar and accuracy of names, titles, dates, contact information, etc. Messages will be moderated, but not fact checked for accuracy of names, phone numbers, e-mail, Web addresses, or related. Please do not include all-caps and exclamation points for emphasis. Acronyms should be spelled out the first time they appear, and event titles should be concise.
