Speech Seats: A Forensic Row of Excellence

Thanks to a generous matching grant from the EMU President's Office, If you make a $500 gift for one seat, the 1-to-1 match will allow you to name an additional seat!

 

Speech Seats: A Forensic Row of Excellence Campaign

The School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts needs your help to replace all seats in both Theatres. The EMU Forensics Team is seeking to support this campaign by raising $6,000.00 to name an entire row of seats in Sponberg Theatre after prominent EMU Forensics alumni. 

You can help us reach our goal by making a gift for individual or multiple seats. Or you can make a contribution of any size to support this important cause. 

Seat naming 

Donate a seat in Sponberg Theatre for only $500 per seat. 

Every seat donated will receive a personalized nameplate on its armrest. Purchase a seat for yourself; to celebrate your student; to memorialize a loved one; to honor the legacy of a mentor/professor; or even in the name of a group, organization, or company. The choice is yours!

Donate

Cannot afford to purchase an entire seat? Donations of any amount will assist us in reaching our goal. Remember, every little bit helps!

Can I pick my seat?

Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Forensics Row is planned to be in the third row of the Sponberg Theatre.

Will I be able to sit in my seat(s) at performances?

The S.I.T. Campaign does not include a seat license. We therefore cannot guarantee that named seat(s) will be available for personal use during ticketed performances.

Pledge option

If you would like to make a pledge commitment, please send an email to Kathy Stacey at kstacey@emich.edu.
