The Samford University Event Calendar offers a central listing of significant university events that are open to the Samford community or the public. Samford employees may access a comprehensive event schedule in SPACES. OrgSync provides a similar solution for students. The registrar’s office maintains the official academic calendar. Academic units, advancement, athletics and Samford Arts maintain audience specific calendars.
What events can be posted?
Approved events that are open to the Samford community or open to the public can be advertised on the Samford Events Calendar if they meet the following requirements:
- the event is sponsored by Samford University;
- the event has been submitted and approved within SPACES;
- required approvals are on file (e.g., unit leadership, contracts with speakers or vendors);
Outside companies or organizations, with whom we do not have collaborative promotion agreements, do not qualify and may not post events.
The Division of Marketing and Communication reserves the right to deny, delete and/or edit event listings if the information provided does not meet the above mentioned criteria.
How do I submit an event?
If you are in a school, please contact the Marketing and Communication colleague for your unit and he or she may add your event to the calendar.
If you are not in a school, please use the form at the bottom of this page to submit a request. You will receive a response to your request within 72 hours of submission.
How do I change event information on the calendar?
It is important that changes to event details are reported quickly in order to avoid confusion among your audience.
If you are in a school, please contact the Marketing and Communication colleague in your unit to revise your listing.
If you are not in a school, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that changes must be made in Spaces AND on the university events calendar listing—these revisions do not happen simultaneously.
