Definitions of Types of Presidential Participation
President should host events initiated by his office, held at the presidential residence, or that the audience is specifically a system-wide group. Co-hosts may be appropriate for events that meet some of these criteria but are focused on a single university unit.
Most events will fall in this category. The President participates in an official capacity as part of the program in the event but the event is hosted by a university unit.
The President can be invited as an attendee to the occasional events where logically official representation is not necessary or it is an important part of the message for the unit chief executive to be seen as not only the host, but the driving force behind the event message. Clarification should be provided in the remarks column of the online form.
