Thank you for interest in co-sponsoring an event with the University Program Council (UPC). We value opportunities to program diverse events to benefit the University of North Texas community and collaborating with other organizations helps us accomplish this goal.

Because UPC plans events a semester in advance, we highly recommend that you submit your Co-Sponsorship proposal as early as possible. For example if you’re interested in a date that is during the spring semester, it is best to have your form turn in by late October of the previous semester.

If you are looking strictly for funding for your event, and you are a student organization, please consider requesting funds from Eagle Nest sponsored by SGA Funding Request Committee. More information can be found here: http://sga.unt.edu/eagles-nest

Ways in which UPC can assist your organization/department:

  • Volunteers for the day of event
  • If there are any bookings to be done for artists we will arrange them or help your group arrange them
  • Provide guidance on the programming process as a whole
  • Advertising assistance for events
  • Assistance in obtaining facilities
  • Possible, but in no cases exclusive, funding for the event

For more information about Co-Sponsorships and to apply, please fill out the form and submit to the UPC Office, Union 345.

When you join the University Program Council, you become more than a member. UPC takes pride in its students and supports them whenever possible. Our organization is run by students and promotes from within. UPC can connect you with fellow students and other leaders on campus.

"UPC has allowed me to meet people I would not have come in contact with otherwise. The friends I have made through this organization are friends I know I will have for life" -Joshua Lawson, Social Media Coordinator

 

The University Program Council functions more as a large family than organization. Our members love to socialize outside of school. We also offer regularly planned socials. 

"I know one day when I look back at my time in college some of my favorite memories will be because I joined this organization." -Natalya Yanis, member

 

UPC coordinators strive to implement members' ideas and program new and relevant events. UPC provides several leadership opportunities and various workshops to its members. 

“I have met amazing people while being involved in so many fun campus activities! I met my best-friend through UPC and really feel involved with the UNT community. I'm happy to be involved with such a diverse and active group.” -Edith Flores, member

So, if you love helping others, working events, and want to see your ideas implemented on campus; the University Program Council is for you.
