CWGS Co-Sponsorship Policy

A co-sponsorship is funding for a specific event for which The University of Texas at Austin receives a benefit as well as recognition for the co-sponsor (CWGS). In the interests of academic freedom, the Center for Women's & Gender Studies co-sponsors a variety of student- and faculty-organized events. Views expressed by participants in these events do not necessarily represent the views or positions of CWGS, its Director, Associate Director, or staff.

The Center for Women’s & Gender Studies will accept requests for co-sponsorships. To support your request, please include the following:

  1. A budget
 with suggested levels of co-sponsorship, or specific assistance the Center can provide.
  2. A clear statement of how the Center would benefit from the co-sponsorship; i.e., How does the event align with the values and mission of the Center?

What we can do:

  • send information to our student and faculty listservs
  • ask one of our work-study students to help design a flyer for the event in Photoshop
  • post flyers around campus

  • assist with reserving a room

What we cannot do:

  • serve alcohol
; sell books
; or handle other monetary transactions

  • assist with an off-campus or non-academic event

What we ask in return:

All publicity for the event should include the statement “Co-sponsored by the Center for Women’s & Gender Studies” and the CWGS logo.
If you have any questions about CWGS co-sponsoring an event, please call 512-471-5765.
