The Office of Special Events at The University of Houston handles an average of 125 events per year with a total staff of five, including four event planners and one operational/budget staff person. This is in no way inclusive of all events that occur on the university campus within a year. However, it does cover those events that are most closely related to the Chancellor/President of the university and the senior administrators.
Special Events are regularly conducted at all levels and locations throughout the university system in support of the university’s strategic vision and brand identity. When involved, the Office of Special Events offers guidance and assistance in several areas.
