Campus Events + Entertainment is the largest event-planning organization on campus. Our student leaders plan, promote, and produce the best programs that represent the diverse interests of UT students. Student members gain experience in budgeting, management, marketing, decision-making, leadership development and working together to produce campus events.
Membership in E+E is free and open to all current UT students! Meetings are held during the long semesters, so feel free to stop in at any of our meetings to see what our organizations are all about and how you can get involved on campus.
Mission Statement and Learning Outcomes
Campus Events + Entertainment (E+E) empowers students by providing opportunities to create and engage in diverse events. Our student run committees strive to foster innovation and creativity as well as develop leaders while serving the University of Texas at Austin community.
All E+E student leaders are expected to gain knowledge and skills in the following critical areas:
Communication and Collaboration
Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, and Creativity
Civic Engagement and Responsibility
It is the responsibility of all student leaders involved with E+E to facilitate group success through effective teamwork. Students work closely with both their peers and staff advisors to achieve program and personal success.
The Student Engagement and Alumni Committee (SEAC) aims to build strong relationships between students and alumni to support student initiatives that encourage continued development after their time at the University Unions and provide opportunities to facilitate engagement and connection between students and alumni through events and activities.
