Welcome to the Events Council

The UC San Diego Events Council is a network made up of event and venue coordinator professionals throughout the university. It is a part of the department of Special Events and Protocol. Please visit the Special Events and Protocol website for more information.

Our Mission

The Events Council's mission is to provide networking and educational opportunities to event planning professionals that focus on learning best practices, mitigating risks and standardizing procedures across campus in an effort to promote safe and successful events on behalf of the university as a whole as well as for individual campus units.
This is accomplished by:

  • Hosting council meetings four times per year
  • Offering opportunities for members to network, share best practices and showcase campus services
  • Providing developmental presentations led by UC San Diego subject matter experts

Membership is open to all staff involved in coordinating events on behalf of UC San Diego. 

Events and Activities Intake Form

Before hosting a Major Event at UC San Diego, the sponsoring campus department must review the university's major events policy and then enter information in the appropriate web form. The Events and Activities Intake Form is required for all events regardless of size and fulfills the MEP (Major Event Protocol) reporting requirement for events over 100 people or events where alcohol will be served, replacing the previous form.
