Campus Programming Board

How can Luther's Campus Programming Board help you plan a program or event?

The board:

  • encourages innovative programs not otherwise offered on campus
  • coordinate cross-campus collaboration and resource sharing
  • facilitate connections between events and academic programming
  • consider applications for funding campus events, in amounts up to $1500 per event.

Applications with substantiated significant campus impact may request more than $1500. All faculty and administrative staff members may submit proposals to the Campus Programming Board. In general, Campus Programming Board will not provide ongoing annual or biennial funding.

All funding for the 2023-24 academic year has been awarded.
Applications for the 2024–25 academic year will be accepted starting April 16, 2024.

Funding of proposals is not automatic. It is the role of the Campus Programming Board to evaluate proposals on:

  • promise of quality
  • relevance to the academic and cultural community
  • potential for relatively broad appeal on the campus
  • connections to academic or other programs on campus
  • support for diversity of student experiences involving a variety of campus constituencies

The likelihood of a favorable response to a proposal is enhanced by evidence of realistic and careful planning. Proposals should include at least one opportunity available to the entire campus community.

The Campus Programming Board’s first review cycle begins in April, prior to the targeted academic year, with a second application opportunity extending through September. If funds are still available, deadlines may be extended beyond September.

Applications are submitted April 16 to April 30. Review of applications, and allocation of funds is completed by May 16.

Applications received between April 30 and October 1 will be reviewed, with allocation of funds completed by October 16.Applicants who were previously declined may revise and resubmit.

Your application will not be reviewed until date and location options have been discussed with the Campus Programming Office. You may submit an application with possible date and location, pending coordination with your event partners.

Resources are available for planning your event at Campus Programming.
