Common Hour Committee

A committee composed of students, faculty and professional staff is charged with vetting and approving proposals for Common Hour events from the campus community. They work to present a diverse and compelling schedule of topics each semester. The funding and all losistics outside of the actual Common Hour event are the responsibility of the campus sponsor(s).  The committee is happy to field questions from sponsors.
