Using the Public Event Calendar
The Public Event Calendar and Public Featured Events
The Public Event Calendar contains a subset of the events from the Campus Event Calendar. Computing Services has identified a predefined set of Campus Event Calendars that are of interest to the general public. These predefined Event Calendars are automatically included in the Public Event Calendar (e.g., Academic Calendar, CFA/Music, University Lecture Series, Athletics, etc.). Event providers for individual Campus Event Calendars can opt to share their public events with the Public Event Calendar as well. However, your event must first be added to our Campus Event Calendar.
In addition to the Public Event Calendar, there is also a Public Featured Events calendar. This is an area within the Public Event Calendar that receives prominent placement on the www.cmu.edu/events/ web page.
The following sections contain instructions for adding events of public interest to the Public Event Calendar and Public Featured Events.
Guidelines for Selecting Public Events
You must adhere to the following guidelines when recommending events for the Public Event Calendar.
- Share only those events that are intended for public use or attendance.
- Do NOT share events that are restricted to Carnegie Mellon University affiliates.
- Do NOT share events that may violate copyright law (e.g., movies shown on campus).
- You can only share an event with the Public Event Calendar after it has been added to your Campus Event Calendar.
Share events with the Public Event Calendar or Public Featured Events
Use the Public Event Calendar Request form to share all or individual events from your Campus Event Calendar with the Public Event Calendar. This form can also be used to indicate whether an individual event should be included as a "featured" event.
The ideal method for sharing events with the public calendar depends on whether all or only some of the content of your Campus Event Calendar is suitable for the public.
