Events planning process chart detailing 5 stepsSTUDENT LIFE, EQUITY, & ENGAGEMENT | SR CAMPUS

Events and activities are an important part of Student Life, Equity, & Engagement at SRJC. Coming together around shared interests helps build community, bring the curriculum to life, and engage the community. However, events often require support from multiple service areas on campus. It is important to follow all processes and procedures. If you only need to reserve a room for your club, please complete the room reservation form.

Hosting an event starts with these five steps:

  • Step 2: Download the Event Checklist and go through it with your faculty/staff advisor.
  • Step 3: Complete and submit a Special Event application. Event applications must be submitted by least 3 weeks in advance of the event to be considered.
  • Step 4: Attend the Events Workgroup or Events Walkthrough to answer questions from the Campus Services as needed.
  • Step 5: Receive written approval from Cabinet / Senior Admin. Please be sure to incorporate any feedback from Cabinet or the Events Workgroup. Please wait for final approval before promoting and purchasing supplies for the event.
