Faculty and Staff Workshops – Fall 2017


Due to a sudden change in availability of the room G-604, workshops that were to be held in that room have had to be relocated. This means that the actual room for some workshops will be different than what is printed on flyers or sent out in earlier E-mails. Please check back here before a given workshop to double-check its location.

Affected faculty workshops are on 9/5, 10/5, 11/2, 12/7.
