Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.
To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:
- The event must take place in Utah.
- The organization promoting the event must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
- The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.
If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.
KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization. Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible. Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.
Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.
If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.
Human tragedy often leads to human triumph. Such is the case with Dr. Hugh Herr, the featured speaker at the 2018 Spring Presidential Lecture Series on March 7 in the Classroom Building 101 A-B from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
As a young, aspiring, rock-climbing prodigy, Dr. Herr lost both legs in a winter-related accident on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Devastated by the amputations and the death of one of his rescuers, Dr. Herr dedicated his life to developing bionic limbs for amputees and augmenting human capability through bionics.
He once told an NPR reporter: “I’m titanium, carbon, silicon and a bunch of nuts and bolts. My limbs that I wear have 12 computers, five sensors and muscle-like actuator systems that enable me to move throughout my day.” Time Magazine has called him the “Leader of the Bionic Age.”
The Presidential Lecture is open to the public and all in the UVU community are encouraged to attend. Faculty whose courses may align with Dr. Herr’s topic are particularly encouraged to invite their students. For those unable to attend, the lecture will also be a Facebook Live event on UVU’s Facebook page (facebook.com/utahvalleyuniversity) and can also be found on UVU’s YouTube page (youtube.com/user/UtahValleyUniversity). The Presidential Lecture series is an important element of UVU’s commitment to a serious, engaged, inclusive education, and we look forward to having you with us, as we welcome Dr. Hugh Herr to our campus.
