  • Work with Contracted-Independent Organizations (CIO)/other groups on events to enrich event attendee experiences

  • Co-sponsor with CIOs/other groups in order to bring unique insight and important messages/themes to the event planning process

  • Provide proper and necessary resources as well as event planning advisement in collaboration with CIOs/other groups to ensure the best quality and turnout for events

  • Build and maintain strong, lasting relationships with CIOs/other groups 

We hope to use our experience as a programming board to mentor and assist other organizations collaboratively in order to put on events for our student body and external communities. While UPC is able to provide financial assistance for events, co-sponsorships should fulfill UPC's mission - provide enhanced programming for our diverse audiences, so that we can produce the best quality events. As such, co-sponsorships will allow UPC committees to work directly with an external group to plan an event from start to finish, while also allowing the external group to learn various methods in planning events.
