The University Events Calendar is a publicly accessible online calendar that contains university approved and sponsored events. Public events are open to a large audience, such as all students, staff, faculty, or the general public.
Calendars can be requested by any university college, academic department, university-wide program (e.i. Common Experience), or support department. If you have a website in Gato, you qualify to have a calendar in the University Events Calendar.

The University's Public Events Calendar (http://events.txstate.edu) is made up of individual department calendars that are maintained by the individual calendar owners. Our department (Educational Technology Center) maintains the software it runs on. To post an event, at least one person from your department will need to attend training and request a calendar. To see if someone is already maintaining your department's calendar, check this page: http://universityevents.its.txstate.edu/adding-events.htm
For more information about the calendar system, please see the Calendar Help web site: http://universityevents.its.txstate.edu/
Events posted to the main University's homepage are handled separately and not part of the University Events Calendar.
Recognized student organization will be able to list their events on the Student Organizations calendar that is managed by Campus Activities and Student Organizations (CASO). Any events located at the LBJ Student Center may be listed on the LBJ Student Center calendar. Only official university chartered student organizations qualify for their own calendar.
The Featured Events Calendar is a special collection of events featured at the university. All events that have the "Featured Events" category checked when adding the event will be included. For information about Featured Event requirements, see Featured Events.
The university homepage has room for two featured events. Sub-homepages have room for up to four featured events.
University Marketing will be responsible for choosing the final featured events displayed.
The Calendar Events Paragraph type allows you to automatically add university events to your website. The events are automatically pulled from the University Events Calendar located at http://events.txstate.edu.
To add a list of events, create a new paragraph and select “Calendar Event.” Give your events listing a title. Next, choose a calendar to display on your website. Meta-calendars are calendars containing all events occurring under a parent organization and all of its sub-departments and programs. Lastly, choose the number of days in to the future you would like events to be displayed (i.e. 7 days, 30 days, etc.)
The University Events Calendar is made up of individual department calendars that are maintained by the individual calendar owners. Our department (Educational Technology Center) maintains the software it runs on. Each event contains a contact for that event that should be able to answer your questions. If you need help finding the contact, email email@example.com, and let us know which event you are interested in, and we will look it up.
Anyone who has been to University Events Calendar training can be added to a calendar with the calendar manager's permission. The calendar manager will need to send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
