The calendar is meant to be a useful tool focused on events happening at and/or sponsored by the University. Additionally, the calendar serves as an online tool to disseminate information about University-related events to the local media for publicity purposes.

The Campbell University events calendar provides information about Campbell-related events only. Members of the University Communications & Marketing staff will make all judgments to include or not include submitted requests for calendar entries on the basis of the following:

  • Sponsored by Campbell University or an entity or partner organization of the University or by an authorized student organization.
  • Held on a Campbell University campus.
  • Presented by a Campbell University faculty member, administrator, or University representative if held off campus in a location not affiliated with the University.
The calendar will not include any events that fail to adhere to the University’s drug and alcohol policy or which involve expressions of partisan points of view, except with regards to titles and descriptions of education events designed to facilitate open dialogue.

If you have questions about the calendar and its guidelines, email cuweb@email.campbell.edu.
