Anyone may propose an event by filling out an event proposal form and mailing it to:
Center Stage, General Education Events
Henderson Hall Room 204C
Please also see Campus Host Guidlines when proposing an event.
To be included in the regular series, proposals must be received by November 15 of the year prior to the one in which the event is intended to take place. Some late proposals can be accommodated by the small contingency fund maintained for Center Stage. Final selection of proposals to be funded is made by a faculty/staff/student committee.
The General Education Fund, created by student fees, is used annually to present two series of activities: a fine arts series and a series featuring diverse cultural perspectives. Together, these events are called the Center Stage series.
Responsibility for planning the series has been delegated to the Chairs of a Fine Arts Committee and a World Cultures Committee: Ward Doubet (Department of Art) and Ada Haynes (Department of Sociology and Political Science), respectively.
Proposals for activities to be sponsored by the General Education Fund during academic year 2013-2014 are welcome from anyone in the TTU community. The deadline for receipt of such proposals is November 16, 2012. Each proposal will then be sent to the appropriate committee for consideration.
To be fully considered, a proposal should include the information asked for on the official form; event name, brief description of the event, justification for including it in the series, name and contact numbers of the campus host (see Campus Host Guidelines), proposed budget (honoraria, travel, publicity materials, postage, receptions, other), age appropriateness, and an explanation of why this event cannot be funded from other sources.
