Welcome to the Office of Special Events


The Office of Special Events supervises and directs the planning and coordination of special events for the Office of the President, selected events requested by the Vice President involving University donors, events hosted by the Board of Trustees, groundbreaking, naming and dedication events, and selected major University-wide events.
 
Depending on the nature of the event, the Office of Special Events team will assist and advise on event protocol, cost and budget management, program design, conception and production, logistical coordination, facility use and design, and event promotion.
 
In addition, the Office of Special Events is responsible for advising the Presidential Ambassadors, purchasing custom and specialized gifts for guests, sponsors, and donors, managing the Institutional Advancement calendar, and reviewing table purchases and/or sponsorships for various community or external events.
 
The Office of Special Events is located in the beautiful Peterson House at the corner of W. Bancroft and Drummond Road. Due to the increased volume of guests parking at the Peterson House, we ask that you refer to this MAP for parking accommodations.
 
Mission Statement: The mission of the Office of Special Events is to plan and manage special events, programs and projects for the Office of the President and for the Division of Advancement as well as selected University-wide events. These events are designed to stimulate the involvement and interest of an ever-growing support base comprised of students, alumni, donors, friends and community partners of The University of Toledo.
 
"A special event is a day that is different from a normal day of living"
