Plan an Event

Planning An Event
The first step for any event is completing the Event Notification and Authorization Form, which appears on the left side under "Application." 

The Event Authorization Committee exists to ensure that the proper guidelines are adhered to for the University and to assist you in the planning and preparation of your event. Members of the committee will represent the following areas FP&M, DPS, DOR, SAC, ISU Dining, Recreation Services, Risk Management, Environmental Health & Safety, and Event Management.

Based on the type of event you are holding, you may or may not have to meet with the Event Authorization Committee (EAC). All student events must be approved by Event Authorization. If you have further questions please call 515-294-8081.
