University Events


The mission of the University Events department is to provide an experienced, reliable, and professional staff of event planners to assist faculty, staff and students with the planning and implementation of their special events from initial concept to completion of the event.  We strive to exceed expectations, to provide an event that will be remembered as a "unique experience", to maintain a consistent, high level of service, and to be fair, honest and ethical in all dealings with our students, faculty/staff, donors, clients and suppliers.

James Madison University never stands still. Nearly every day, the university holds multiple events that enhance our rich Madison Experience for everyone in the JMU community. University Events works with event coordinators across campus to plan and facilitate these events. Our goal is to help ensure attendees receive the best possible encounter with JMU while at our functions.
