Winthrop University: Cultural Events - Committee

Cultural Events


When a student petitions for Cultural Event credit, it goes before the Cultural Events Committee for approval. The Cultural Events Committee consists of eight members. The committee is made up of six members of the Winthrop faculty, appointed by the office of the Academic Vice-President & Provost, and two student members, selected by the Winthrop Council of Student Leaders. The Cultural Events Coordinator attends each meeting and serves in an ex-officio capacity. However, during the summer term or in the absence of the committee, the Cultural Events Coordinator has the authority to approve any petitions attended from the list of suggested off-campus events. The committee is responsible for approving on-campus Cultural Events, determining whether approved Cultural Events meet the criteria for Global Learning Cultural Events, and reviewing and deciding upon student Cultural Events petitions and portfolios. The committee meets bi-weekly throughout the semester, including one final meeting prior to each commencement. The submission deadlines and committee meeting dates for Spring 2019 can be found at the top of the Cultural Events calendar, as well as below:
