Calendars & Events

Event calendars are used to announce events by a department, organization or program. We have selected OrgSync as our designated event calendaring resource to centralize calendaring and to obtain valuable data about campus programming and student engagement.

Resource calendars are a separate type of calendar that shows when a facility is available. Please contact us for more information about this type of calendar.
