19 UP Safety
To access 19UP you must upload proof of vaccination, complete the daily screener, and swipe your id card at the door. Please be sure to wear a mask at all times except for behind the closed doors of your office. As per university guidance, eating and drinking are not permitted in any common areas on campus. Faculty may eat behind closed doors of their individual office.
In-Person Staff Hours
The department's full-time staff, A.M. Wild and Deirdre Collins work a blended in-person/telework schedule with a staff member available in-person five days per week. In addition, we have two undergraduate office assistants, Sandy Battulga and Cameron Field who work in-person should you need additional assistance. All email is monitored during regular business hours Monday through Friday.
Faculty Office Hours
Faculty may hold in-person office hours at their discretion if 7 feet of space can be maintained between attendees. However, we recommend that office hours be held remotely through the Fall semester.
As a reminder, our department uses google appointments, a method that allows students to book open appointments during specific times set by you via your google calendar. Any booked appointments appear immediately and can be edited or adjusted as needed. For directions and tips on how to use this easy feature, please watch the tutorial and/or visit the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ97hx8-mdA.
