Event Management Planning Team (EMPT)
The Events Management Planning Team (EMPT) is a committee that can assist you with the planning of your events. EMPT is made up of representatives from various offices throughout the university including the Campus Activities Office, Cornell Police, Environmental Health and Safety, Risk Management and Insurance, Traffic and Transportation Services, Community Relations, and Campus Information and Visitor Relations. Learn more.
EMPT meets on Thursdays at 3:00 pm (as needed*) in the CU Police Department Conference Room (near the Lost & Found window in Barton Hall). These meetings enable event planners to consult directly with university officials about their events, and often result in obtaining approvals for UUP forms.
*Note: EMPT members meet on an as-needed basis throughout the year with students, faculty, and staff who are planning events. Contact Roxanne Edsall-Beebe in the Campus Activities Office at (607) 255-4169 for more information regarding the EMPT meeting schedule, or to be placed on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
