Columbia is a very large, complex institution with its necessary rules and procedures. For a student producing an event on campus, navigating this labyrinth can seem like an impossible task. The purpose of the below rough guides, is to help Columbia students through the process of planning, preparing, funding, marketing, and producing a Columbia event.
These various guides represent the combined and extraordinary efforts of the CUarts Events and Outreach Staff, many of whom were heavily involved in the performing arts community on campus - whether as director, producer, actor, or supporter.
Darcy Zacharias (CC '10) served as project lead and writer for the guides.
Note: All information contained herein is intended for recognized student groups that are producing an event at Columbia University. If you are an individual or unrecognized group, we hope that you may benefit from this guide but many of the policies are not applicable to your needs.
