The Dean's Corner
Finally, to reserve the STEM CTL (Room 3307) please send your email request to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to copy Lavonne Whitlock at email@example.com. Remember that first priority use will be given to training, workshops, and events that require technology. Also, NO FOOD or DRINKS (including water) are allowed in Room 3307. When not in use for training or workshops, we encourage faculty/staff to use the facility to collaborate, collaborate and collaborate. The setting is very conducive to life-long learning.
