Promote Your Event

Our listservs reach thousands of researchers and scholars at the University. We have partnered with the University's master calendar of events to create a calendar and feeds to feature upcoming events of interest to researchers and scholars.

Events added to the calendar will be featured in a once-weekly email to our audiences at the beginning of each work-week. Please submit your event by 9am on Friday to ensure your events inclusion in the next week's round-up of events.

Please see the instructions below for creating your event in the Localist calendar system.

Step 1: Login or Signup

Go to and Login with your CaneID credentials. If it's your first time in the system, click "Sign Up."

Step 2: Submit an Event

Click "Submit an Event."

Step 3: Fill in Information

Add the title, description, start/end times and location/virtual meeting information for your event. There is no character limit for the description and the title field can handle fairly long titles as well, so feel free to enter as much info as you like.

Note: Although there is an option to create a Zoom link for your event from this platform, if you already have one, just enter the link you already have in the "Dial In Instructions" box.

You have the option to include a picture with your event. If you have a PDF event flyer, save as JPG or PNG in Adobe and upload. The full image of the flyer will show up in our round-up.  

Step 4: Select "Research & Scholarship"

IMPORTANT: Under "Filters" make sure to select "Research & Scholarship" as one of the departments. This will ensure the event goes to our moderation queue and is picked up for inclusion in our calendar of events.

Step 5: Submit

Submit your event. All listings tagged "Research & Scholarship" will go to the VPRS for approval and be added to our calendar and weekly round-up of upcoming events. If you experience any trouble, feel free to reach out to for assistance.
