Darlene Tedrow will work with you to provide an office, furniture, phone and other infrastructure and services that will help you do your best work. We all look forward to working with you. Please consider the following:
|What||How & When||Who|
|Office Space||Your office will be located near those of your departmental colleagues if at all possible.
Our goal is for your office to be ready for you on or about August 1. Ordinarily, previous occupants are asked to vacate offices by June 30 so that there is time for cleaning and repairs before new occupants arrive on August 1. However this will vary greatly depending on a number of factors; in some cases where the previous occupant left campus right after submitting her/his spring-semester grades in mid-May, your office may be ready for you much earlier. In other cases, the previous occupant may be waiting for carpenters, painters or others to complete preparations for his or her move to a different office, so yours may not be available to you until mid-August. Each case is different, so be prepared for the unexpected.
|If you are unsure of the location of your office or when you may move into it, contact your department chair, administrative assistant or email or call Darlene Tedrow, 740-427-5118.|
(office and/or building)
|You will be issued key(s) to your office and your building as soon as the office and keys are available.||Keys are available from the administrative assistant for your department or, in some cases, from Darlene Tedrow, 740-427-5118.|
|Furniture||You can expect that your office will contain a desk, a desk chair, a side chair, and a filing cabinet. Ordinarily, you may arrange your furniture and decorate your office to suit yourself whenever you like.
Please do not undertake any painting in your office without first contacting Darlene Tedrow.
|If additional furniture is needed, or repairs are necessary, email or call Darlene Tedrow, 740-427-5118.|
|Phone||Your office should contain a telephone and the number will be published in the Campus Directory along with your name and office location. Your phone should be in working order when you move into your office or soon thereafter. If the number is not obvious, dial 0 and ask the operator for the number of the phone from which you are dialing.||If your phone or connection needs attention, email or call Darlene Tedrow, 740-427-5118.|
(for your office door)
|Ordinarily, nameplates are attached to your door or the wall nearby — usually in late July or early August.||If we have somehow missed you, please do not take matters into your own hands.
