guidelines for proposals
Guidelines for Proposals
  • Proposals for events should fit the following criteria:
  • The event should be on campus. Exceptions are possible, but priority will be given to events located on the Oneonta campus.
  • The event should benefit the campus community, not just a narrow interest group or population. It should have a general appeal to a wide audience including students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.
  • The proposal should include a financial plan and funding should be sought from more than one source.
  • The proposal should have a publicity plan in place.
  • The proposal should be submitted by a member of the faculty, staff, or a current or retired employee of the college.
  • The event should be “college sponsored.” Public events funding is not designed to subsidize events that primarily promote non-college organizations or groups in the larger community.

what else did we do
What Else Did We Do?
  • We migrated to the web. The Public Events Committee now relies entirely on web-based applications. Information about the process is available by linking to the Public Events Committee link through the College Senate website.
  • A final report form - used by funding recipients to provide information to the committee about the completed event - is also available through the web page.
  • In order to distribute the tasks of the committee more evenly, processing of funding requests is now being handled by Laura Madelone in the Office of Alumni Affairs.
