An Overview of Events
When planning an event at Lewis & Clark, you will need to consider scheduling and promotion.
Scheduling involves finding the right time and venue for your event. To reserve space and ensure your event won’t conflict with any other scheduled events, talk to the appropriate events office: Office of Conferences and Events (for events on the undergrad and grad campuses) or Law Events (for events on the law campus).

Once your venue is reserved, the following steps can help you spread the word about your event.
The main promotional tool for at events Lewis & Clark is our online calendar, which pulls together the web calendars of individual departments, offices, etc., into one place. The tool we use for this is our LiveWhale content management system, and each item that is added to LiveWhale’s events system automatically displays on both the group’s site as well as the central calendar.

Events of particular interest or importance may be selected to be listed in our Featured Events area, which appears on the homepages and on our internal news site, The Source. To have your event considered for inclusion in Featured Events, please contact Emily Miller (x7960 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
