Sponsoring nonKUMC Event

Who can sponsor a non-KUMC event?

A Department, Faculty or Staff member may sponsor a non-KUMC event. The Department Chair and sponsoring staff/faculty will need to sign a Sponsorship Agreement form. This form indicates that the department is willing to accept responsibility for the event.

What are these responsibilities?

In agreeing to sponsor an event a department accepts responsibility for assuring the event will be in compliance with institutional policies and state regulations. The department and sponsor are responsible for arranging for access to the scheduled facility as well as repair of any damages or any cleaning that may be required beyond normal use. The sponsoring member of the department is to be in attendance at the event.

What are examples of the events that may be sponsored?

Some events that are sponsored by KUMC departments include professional group meetings or seminars, Medical Arts Symphony, voter registration drives, chamber of commerce events, etc.

How do I schedule a Non-KUMC event?

Call TLT at 588-7326 to see if a suitable facility is available on the date and time required. They will be able to provide the Sponsorship Agreement form and a Request form for the event. Both forms will need to be filled out and sent to the Director of Administrative Services. TLT will put a hold on the facility you are requesting, but your event will not be confirmed until these forms have been completed and approved.
