The programmers are tasked with putting on events around campus that enrich the student experience, such as educational lectures, fine arts, and community social events, in a way that is accessible and affordable to students. The events also serve as spaces for the Tacoma community to gather in a learning community with the university and as points of intersection between students and community members. Each programmer has specific genres of programming they are responsible for, but they often collaborate with each other and with other campus organizations.
