RE: 502, WA5, Little

The purpose of EVOC 502 WA5 was to prepare a proposal for a student relations event in support of the course I would teach in Oceanography. The following six criteria were specified:

1.      Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.

2.      Develop a plan a particular EVENT or ACTIVITY that will promote good public relations for a particular existing course or program and indicate why that event or activity is likely to have good public relations value.

3.      Format the plan as a proposal and address the proposal to a school administrator who would be in a position to approve and support it. Indicate why the event will be beneficial to the school.

4.      Provide an estimate of how much money the event will cost and related information about what type of support will be required (facilities, materials, staff time, etc.).

5.      Include a timeline that specifies information about WHAT needs to be done, WHEN it needs to be done and WHO will do it.

6.      List and briefly describe at least one good resource from which further information about planning public relations events can be obtained.

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

1.      Little, Rick - From my own professional experience.

2.      Lowman, Judy - Chaffey College Instructor

I believe that the attached proposal meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.

RE: Event Proposal for Oceanography


The students in the Oceanography course would like to present a class prepared movie on Oceanography experiments that the class has conducted. This movie would be shown in the Chaffey Museum Auditorium on Thursday, March 14, 2003, from 6 pm till 8:30 pm.. This will be an excellent opportunity for students of the college to see interesting facts about oceanography.


Use of the auditorium, set up before and clean up after the presentation, an estimated 3 hours work by the custodian (@$20/hr = $60)


* March 8, 2003 - Request submitted to president.
* March 10, 2003 - Request approved or denied. If approved:
* March 14, 2003- Show movie
