This page is being updated – please come back soon!

During spring 2023 the Chairs of the Diversity & Equity Committee (DEC) and the Chair of the Graduate & Postdoc Program Committee (GPC) are holding DEC/GPC department culture office hours on alternate Fridays, 11-12:00 p.m. in LSB 302, or Join Zoom Meeting:  Meeting ID: 611 504 3636

Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to drop in for any part of the hour that you are available. We hope to see you.
