Organizations may sponsor events larger than 15 if they obtain a venue which may safely accommodate the expected attendance.  They must follow the Programming Guidelines located here, complete an Operations Program Plan and meet with the appropriate staff (all of which is indicated in the Guidelines).

After hearing Edgar Villanueva, author of "Decolonizing Wealth," speak to the CWRU community as part of CCEL's November Social Change Series philanthropy spotlight, members of CWRU's Delta Tau Delta chapter were inspired by Villanueva's discussion on giving circles, which are formed when a group of individuals come together to pool their time, talent, or treasure to support a philanthropy effort and make a greater impact with their resources. Delta Tau Delta decided to start its own giving circle by pooling $5 from chapter dues monthly to different nonprofits selected by the chapter. In February, the chapter is supporting the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and inviting the larger CWRU community to join in by donating. Learn more about Delta Tau Delta's motivation for starting a giving circle, and consider starting one of your own among family, friends, or clubs to support an organization of your choice and make an even greater impact!

Integrity Week presents Academic Integrity Board
Integrity Week (I-Week) at CWRU is a programming effort hosted by the Academic Integrity Board (AIB) to promote academic integrity among the CWRU student body and the greater CWRU community. This year, we have decided our theme to be Integrity and Wellbeing. The COVID19 pandemic has definitely been an unprecedented time, and now more than ever, it is important to promote health and wellbeing among CWRU students. Our hope is that our 2021 programming can provide tools and resources for CWRU students to know how to be proactive about handling academic challenges during trying moments. Questions?
