Event Planning Guide

Hello, Student Leaders!

Planning an event at the University of Denver is a multi-layered process interwoven with logistical details, problem solving, and relationship building. To demystify the process for students, an interdisciplinary task force was brought together to create this website.

The Event Planning Guide (EPG) provides detailed instructions outlining all of the necessary steps to hold a successful event at DU. Below is a summary of the content you will find throughout this site.
