1. Campus units submit a planning and approval form to WPCE as soon as a decision is made to offer a program (conferences, courses, workshops, institutes, symposiums, seminars, etc.) using the University's name (click here for web page with planning and approval form and instructions).
2. Upon receipt of the planning and approval form, the Assistant Director of WPCE will review the form to determine if the activity falls within the scope of WPCE or if an exemption should be issued.
3. When a program falls within the scope of WPCE, WPCE will meet with the requesting unit to determine the following: budget, marketing plan and publicity, timeline, and WPCE fee based on the total number of staff hours required to produce the event.
In the event a campus unit does not agree with the determination of the Assistant Director of WPCE, the unit may submit its exemption request to the Director of WPCE who will review the request with the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. Alternatively, the divisional vice president may grant an exemption.
