The Events team facilitates events within the College.
This shared services team will help departments and offices within the College plan for and execute events. Someone designated within the department/office will serve as lead, overseeing each event, while the events team will manage and process logistical details. The department/office event lead may be a faculty or staff member or a graduate assistant.
The team, in consultation with the department event lead, manages logistics while implementing best practices that are well-aligned with your participants’ needs and adhere to the policies and procedures of the College, UB and SUNY. Please note that the events team does not facilitate retirement events, service commemorations, or similar celebrations.
