Update on Low Temperatures in Classrooms

2/2/2022

Dear Members, 

Over the past few days, some of you have contacted us about cold classrooms and offices.   In response we reached out to Human Resources informing them of your 55-degree classrooms and offices. 

Their reply stated that Facilities is aware of heat issues in some areas and has fixed or working to fix the issues in our almost fifty-year-old buildings.

Greetings, Colleagues:

I hope the beginning of the semester has brought you minimal chaos and some engaging contact with colleagues and students.  It has been a lonely time for many of us, and starting a new semester at least offers the promise of some energizing f2f activity.
