Office of Public Affairs

Submit your USM event

Thank you for submitting information about your USM event (public events that are hosted by the USM community - ie: faculty, staff, students and programs). The Office of Public Affairs reviews event submissions to strategically determine levels and types of promotion and coverage. For appropriate coverage, your complete event information should be submitted at least one month before the date of your event. Please fill in all event information, as thoroughly as possible, below. Note: Public Affairs typically only publicizes USM events that are listed on the USM calendar. To post your event there, you must first post your event on your department’s web page(s) and select “cross post to USM Calendar” before publishing.

Please visit our “How to promote your USM event” page for tips on promoting your event.

Upon receiving your event submission, a staff member from the Office of Public Affairs will contact you as soon as possible to discuss promotion strategy.

Thank you!
