Calendar Event Filters

Calendar users are not required to employ event filters, but filters are available to help users find events more easily. The calendar provides several types of filters, as described below.


Sponsors are used to further provide information about event supporters and participants. A sponsor will be created for any Group or Department added to the calendar. An event can have many sponsors. For our purposes, sponsor does not imply financial support. All sponsors must be official MU entities.

Group Types

At this time we are choosing not to implement group types. We will reevaluate at a later time if a need for these arises.

Event Types

Though it is not required, at least one event type should be identified for each event. Please be selective when using this filter. Web Communications reserves the right to edit event types assigned to specific events and to sunset any event type if it is not being sufficiently used. This is our current list of event types:
