Submit upcoming community hour events for publication—and learn just what community hour is

In 2004, Case Western Reserve University introduced “Community Hour,” which takes place every Friday between 12:30 and 2 p.m. During this time, no required academic activity is scheduled. Instead, Community Hour is intended to provide the campus community an opportunity to come together to attend campus-wide lectures or special events or to hold non-academic meetings.

To ensure that the campus community is aware of Community Hour events, they will be publicized in The Daily prior to the events and will appear on the university calendar. To submit an event, coordinators are asked to post to the university calendar at least five days in advance by either:

  • visiting and clicking on the link “see calendar/submit events,” then following submission instructions, or
  • adding an event to Google calendar and inviting to the event.
