MONDAY MEMO 09.16.13


LA l RCP Advisory Council will be on campus Sept. 26-27. Please review the agenda to note meetings and events you and students in your classes will be involved with during the day Thursday and Friday. Please let Courtney Boman know if you will or will not be at the soup supper on Wednesday evening and the dinner on Thursday evening.

Our Promotion and Tenure and Mid-Tenure Presentations will continue through September. All tenured and tenure track faculty are invited to the presentations  that will each begin at 5:30 pm in Seaton 106c, following the schedule to the right.

The Seaton 305 projector has been repaired (again). It is likely that this electrical repair got to the root of our ongoing problems. Thank you for letting Jody know every time it goes out and please continue to do so.
