Frequently asked questions:
Is Get Lit! part of EWU? What does that mean?
Eastern Washington University provides Get Lit! with office space, computers, and the salary & benefits for one-full time staff position (Get Lit! director). We are grateful to the College of Arts, Letters, and Education (CALE) for that support. Beyond those crucial contributions, which have sustained the organization over the years, Get Lit! does not receive an allocated budget from the university for any programming, marketing, or supplies. All of our programs, in addition to overhead costs such as phones, copies, and office supplies are paid for through grants, sponsorships, individual donors sought out by the Get Lit! director, as well as festival ticket and merchandise sales.
