Policy Language

All faculty, staff, students, clubs and departments desiring to schedule extra-Convocation events with currently scheduled Convocation speakers must work through the Office of Spiritual Programs to coordinate additional events and should not contact the speaker independently. The Office of Spiritual Programs must maintain all contracting, communication, hosting and itinerary oversight unless otherwise arranged through OSP.

Policy Rationale

The Convocation office should retain all communication with the speaker to allow for clear, effective communication that does not get muddled by multiple and competing voices from different departments on campus.

The speaker is contractually bound to fulfill all Convocation requirements; any event not coordinated through the Convocation Office can be voided. Additionally, if the Convocation Office is unaware of additional events, the speaker’s itinerary may fail to reflect that event.


Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis at the direction of the President or under agreed upon arrangement between Spiritual Programs and the department wishing to host the speaker.
