Invite the Provost

Thank you for your interest in inviting Dr. Heather H. Norris, Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor to your event.

All event requests are reviewed, and the Provost's staff will fulfill as many requests as the Provost's calendar will allow. Depending on the topic or schedule, you may be referred to another Academic Affairs official so that your request or need is addressed in a timely and respectful manner.

This procedure is for internal campus use only. If you are a member of the general public, please call 828-262-2070.

How to Invite the Provost

This form should be submitted at least 6-8 weeks prior to the event.

To invite Provost Norris to an event, please complete this form.

Again, the completed form will be reviewed by Provost's Office staff and the staff liaison listed on the form will be contacted regarding the Provost's availability.

Once the Provost confirms her attendance to an event, please submit an event brief (i.e., attire, purpose, parking, platform party information (if applicable), program schedule and speaking points) 1-2 weeks prior to the event date.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kathy Brown at or 828-262-2070.

INSTRUCTIONS: Please complete all sections of this form. Submit multiple dates or months in which the event may take place, if possible. This information will allow the Provost's Office to address your event request more effectively.
