University Event Planners is an independent organization for anyone involved with or interested in event planning and hospitality. The group has had its roots in the University of Michigan since the 1980s, but became an independent non-profit membership organization in 2014. Members include collegiate planners, non-collegiate planners and event industry suppliers.


Our Mission
  • Cultivate a community of individuals who represent or serve the collegiate event industry.

  • Provide a professional outlet for future event planners to gain knowledge and experience, develop skills, and network.

  • Provide a forum for information sharing and networking.

  • Promote professionalism of the membership and recognition of that professionalism within the general community.

  • Promote excellence and best practices in the event industry.

  • Advocate the value of the meetings, conferences, exhibition and events industry.




We have a variety of membership categories, each with different eligibility requirements and application rules. So, it is very important to review the definitions and rules before submitting an application. Please refer to the "How to Join" section of this website for details.
