Propose a Speaker Series Event

ECCE Speaker Series welcomes proposals from students, faculty, staff, student organizations, community members and community organizations.  Students, community members and organizations must work with a current UIS staff or faculty co-sponsor.  The ECCE Speaker Series does not accept direct solicitations from speakers or their agents.

Before you submit a Speaker Series proposal, review the detailed information provided for hosts and prospective speakers so you are aware of the roles and expectations associated with an approved Speaker Series event.


Proposal Submission

All Speaker Series proposals must be submitted electronically using this online proposal form. Proposals submitted in another format will not be considered.  If you have questions or experience problems with the form, contact Chasity Bree at cbree@uis.edu or 217-206-8171.
