Joe Pittle's PhotoOur mission is to provide comprehensive meeting planning services to URI faculty and staff for the delivery of noncredit programs to a diverse audience. Conferences, workshops, seminars, short courses, and training programs are the activities we produce with our faculty, staff, and/or clients from off-campus. Programming that enhances URI’s image; fosters recruitment of students; provides opportunities for networking; and facilitates the dissemination of knowledge, receive priority.

We also serve as the URI’s central resource for accessing meeting space and services on campus by external organizations.  All requests are managed by CSPD where appropriate agreements and other related documents are required to utilize campus resources.  This approach ensures a smooth and successful event at URI.

In our process, we are committed to providing professional planning services and expertise to the URI community and others who wish to convene on a URI campus or at any other location.  Contact us to learn more about how we can serve your program.
