Welcome to the Office of University Events


Sealy Society Dinner 2013From formal dinners honoring benefactors to building dedications and receptions, the University of Texas Medical Branch hosts hundreds of special events a year.  Thousands of guests, from contributors, notable dignitaries, elected officials, distinguished alumni, community members, faculty, staff and students take part in UTMB's special events every year.


Each event sets the stage for opportunities to highlight UTMB's excellence as a world-class academic medical center and to share our unique story. For this reason, the Office of University Events (OUE) is committed to first-class events at the highest professional standard. It is our goal to offer support and serve as a resource to event planners across the UTMB Health campus on specific events, event protocol and procedures.

The OUE Team is primarily responsible for the planning, management and execution of events for the President's Office, the Development Office involving University benefactors, or any large scale university-wide event. In addition, OUE works in partnership with the individual schools, departments, hospitals and clinics and other campus groups providing expertise and guidance in the planning and implementation of specific events.

We can assist and advise in several capacities, depending on your needs and the nature of your event:

  • Event Protocol and Etiquette
  • Invitation Wording and Forms of Address
  • Cost and Budget Management
  • Logistical Coordination
  • Event Program Development
  • President's Event Attendance and Participation
