About This Calendar
Events@Duke offers a comprehensive listing of Duke events, including lectures, conferences, performing arts, exhibitions, cultural activities and more. Users can search by date, event category, or organization/group, and can download event details to most personal calendar clients.
Duke’s Office of Administrative and Community Support Services, in partnership with the Office of Information Technology (OIT), produced this calendar. The OACSS manages calendar groups and users, and sets policy for calendar use; OIT provides technical expertise in the way of application development and support.
Duke groups or departments can designate one or more calendar administrators, who can submit events to the calendar. To request that an individual be added as a calendar administrator, please complete the Calendar Administrator Request Form. Any member of the Duke community with a valid Duke NetID can also submit an event to the calendar. These submissions are reviewed and published as appropriate. To learn more, visit Help.
Events@Duke was launched on July 23, 2008, and uses the open-source Bedework calendar software developed by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. For more information about Bedework, please visit www.bedework.org. An enhanced version of Events@Duke was launched on September 7, 2011 offering an updated, branded design coupled with new functionality including a faceted search.
Events@Duke is a publicly accessible Web site. Users are encouraged to visit the site regularly as events are frequently added and updated. The ability to enter events and submit events for consideration is limited to calendar administrators and the Duke community (those with a valid NetID), respectively.
Most schools, departments and other University groups have a designated calendar administrator (or administrators) who have been trained in the use of the calendar and have privileges to publish events for their group in the calendar. To request a new calendar group, submit a Calendar Group Request.
Community Submission of Events
Any individual with a valid Duke NetID may submit an event for consideration. From Events@Duke, select Submit Event and complete the online form. The Office of Administrative and Community Support Services will review all submissions daily and publish events as appropriate.
The Office of News and Communications (ONC) identifies and selects events to be featured (via images) on Events@Duke. To request that an event be considered for promotion, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a digital image to illustrate the event, along with the photographer's name, a caption, and confirmation that you have rights to publish the image on Duke's site. Photos should be at least 300 dpi to display well; smaller sizes may be acceptable. The event must be published on Events@Duke.
