Conference Services Background
The facilities of the University exist for the primary purpose of assisting the University in fulfilling the University’s educational mission. The University seeks to enrich members of the University community through its academic, cultural, and athletic programs and events. Furthermore, the University is committed to being an integral part of our surrounding community. Accordingly, the University’s resources are to be used by students, faculty, and staff, and when appropriate, sponsored groups and organizations not affiliated with the University. The University reserves the right to deny the use of its facilities to any individual or group whose planned activity or event does not enhance the University’s educational mission, or whose planned activity or event does not enhance the potentially cost problems. Furthermore, the University reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a scheduled event when it conflicts with University affairs or events sponsored by the University.
