New Open Office Hours Begin This Month
Do you have questions to ask the Provost, ideas to explore, or concerns to share with her? Or maybe you want to drop by and tell her how much you love UHD!
Starting this Wednesday, Oct. 12, Dr. Deborah Bordelon, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, will hold open office hours on the second Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3 p.m. and on the third Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon.
These office hours are open to faculty, staff, and students. No appointments are necessary, but each meeting should go no longer than 15 minutes in fairness to everyone who wants to meet with Dr. Bordelon.
The Office of the Provost is at the heart of UHD’s academic community, and the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs is responsible for the oversight of academic colleges, departments, and programs. The Office of the Provost is charged with developing policies and programs that enable all in our community to learn and contribute to the world.
The Provost wants to make sure every voice is heard here at UHD, and individual concerns are addressed. Her open office hours are your chance to represent!
