The Office of Events and Conferencing promotes the brand of the University of Mary Washington, and extends its overall mission of service, by treating various constituencies and individuals— both public and university-related— as clients, who are entitled to the office’s resources, energy, and professionalism in connection with planning and pursuing presentations that require one-stop management, facilitation, and completion.
