Office Hours

You are invited to attend monthly Virtual Office Hours with the Vice Provost for Faculty and Staff Affairs team.

Sometimes these will be group meetings to discuss a specific topic. Other times, these will be individual meetings for you to ask specific questions about university issues. The 2022-2023 schedule is below. Sessions are not recorded.

Registration is not required; simply join the Zoom meeting if there is something you would like to discuss.

We encourage cameras to be turned on. Seeing each other helps us to build community, share ideas, conduct discussions, and learn together in a welcoming and inclusive environment.

For individual meetings, only one person at a time will be admitted to the virtual room. If you join when someone else is in the meeting, you will remain in the waiting room until it’s your turn to enter. Individual meetings are focused on issues and are not designed to discuss a personal employment situation.
