Events & Seminars


SSHA Seminars and Events

The deadline to request support for events and guests for the Spring 2018 semester is January 5, 2018.

SSHA Events Staff are here to assist with arranging logistics for events including guest speakers, symposia, and conferences.

In order to ensure that all necessary details and information are received well in advance, we will continue to implement the use of both the attached Seminar Series Schedule Spreadsheet, and the Instructional Event Request Form. Please see the details listed below for additional information on both documents:


Seminar Series Schedule Spreadsheet

·        Used for seminar series or large events hosting multiple guests

·        Keeps track of all travel, reservations, honorarium, etc. on one document

Instructional Event Request Form

·        Used for guest speakers, events, catering, etc. that are not part of a seminar series or large event

Late Requests

If you are submitting a request after the deadline, please send your completed request with a justification to, for review. This process is to ensure better service and prevent the planning and coordination of events from being interrupted by unexpected requests.


Please complete the appropriate document for your guest or event including all requested details or information, and send the document to no later than January 5, 2018.

If at any point you would like to organize an additional presentation or event, we would be happy to assist you; however, requests received after the deadline require my approval and will be processed both in the order they are received, and by priority, taking into consideration capacity and date of the event.


Thank you! Please feel free to contact ssha.seminars@ucmerced if you have any questions.
