University Relations and Marketing
University Relations and Marketing (URM) coordinates and manages an online Calendar of Events. If you want access to post your department's own events, contact Cassie Mathes, Director of University Relations & Marketing, at 417.625.9365. Because of the wide dissemination of these calendars, we make every effort to provide complete and accurate information. Therefore, it is imperative that scheduling information about any programs, lectures, concerts, seminars, etc., which are open to the public or professionals in a given field be made available to URM as soon as it is finalized. (For us there is no such thing as too much lead time!)
Southern Spotlight is published prior to fall and spring semesters and is prepared weeks in advance. The Spotlight reaches more than 3,000 patrons and supporters as well as the region's school districts and the media.
In addition to publishing these calendars, the staff frequently responds to public queries regarding campus events.
One final note: It is important that any CHANGES in scheduling be reported immediately to URM or to the individuals in departments managing their postings to the online calendar of events. The earlier these changes can be funneled into the schedules, the less confusion will result and the more success your event will experience.
