Every Common Hour event begins as a proposal from a member of the campus community. A call for proposals to the Common Hour Committee is given each semester, but students, faculty and professional staff are welcome to submit ideas any time. Students must have a faculty or staff member as a co-sponsor on their event proposal from the beginning and that co-sponsor will be responsible for guiding the student through the proposal and, if approved, the logistics of planning the event.
