Office of the President

To assist the Office of the President in managing the President's schedule, please initiate any invitation for the President to speak at or attend an event by completing this form. The President strives to accept as many invitations as possible. However, she may frequently decline an invitation due to conflicts. We strongly encourage you to submit your invitations as early as possible. Complete this form after your event has been placed on the President's calendar. Your request will be forwarded to the President's Office and you will be contacted by the Dir. of Special Events & Special Projects who will respond as appropriate. If you have any questions, please contact Sherrye Larkins at 410.951.3819 or slarkins@coppin.edu. Thank you for your cooperation.

Event Overview


The primary role of the "Staff Person to the President" is to assist the President while she is representing Coppin State University at various events and appearances. Individuals serving in this capacity will be on site during the event/activity and should expect to assist with the following:

  • Greet the President upon her arrival;
  • Direct her to where she will be seated;
  • Provide an introduction to the person facilitating the event as well as other VIPs as required;
  • Make note of any required follow-up that may result from conversations between the President and event attendees and
  • Generally be available to the President to handle any situation that may arise in relation to her involvement during the event/activity.

By providing this level of assistance you will play a vital role, one which will enhance the President's participation as well as the image of Coppin State University to both internal and external partners. Thank you in advance for your efforts on behalf of the President and CSU.
