University Public Engagement

University Public Engagement (UPE) is a broad spectrum campus unit within the division of University Advancement. With special responsibility for public event oversight, UPE manages Chico Performances, Northstate Public Radio, University Box Office, Commencement, Facilities Reservations, and the University's alcohol policy and concessions service. 

The mission of the Chico State office of University Public Engagement is to enrich and improve the cultural and civic vitality of the communities we serve by providing access to arts, entertainment, news, and ideas.
