Presidential Involvement Request

Thank you for your interest in inviting President Rodney D. Bennett to participate in your event. To assist the Office of the President in managing his schedule, please initiate all event participation and speaking invitations for President Bennett by completing this form.

Please note that for the purposes of this form, an event is defined as any gathering or meeting for which President Bennett is asked to address a group; or any gathering for which invitations are sent either electronically or by mail.

President Bennett strives to accept as many invitations as possible. However, he must frequently decline invitations due to conflicts. The Office of the President attempts to accommodate requests that support the identified priorities of the University and appreciates your patience with the president's complex calendar.

While some details may not be immediately available, we recommend that you submit this form at least six weeks – but no later than 30 days – prior to your event. A member of the President’s Office staff will contact you regarding availability within 10 business days.

Please note that if President Bennett is able to attend your event, you will be asked to confirm all event details and provide additional briefing information about the event and participants a minimum of 5 business days prior to your event. Additionally, any promotional or other event materials will need to be approved by the President’s Office prior to printing and/or distribution.

If you have questions or technical difficulties with the online form, please call 601.266.5001.
