Contacting the instructor

Instructor: Janet Davis
Office: Science 3809
Phone: x4306
Office hours: Posted weekly on my door; you may also email me with 3-4 possible times for an appointment outside of office hours.

I expect to stay in touch with students throughout the term.  Please come by during my office hours to discuss course content, get extra assistance, or talk about how the course is going.  My office hours will be posted weekly outside my office (Science 3809); if you wish, you may sign up for one or two 15-minute slots. You may also email me ( to schedule an appointment outside of office hours; please include 3-4 possible meeting times so that I can pick one that works for me.

Although I very much enjoy getting to know my students, I prefer to reserve office hours for academic matters.  If you would like to have a conversation in a more informal setting, please consider inviting me to lunch; I also invite you to join me on my walk.  I also read plans, though I intend to limit my time spent doing so.

As a rule, email is the most reliable way to get in touch with me.  However, please allow 24 hours for my response. You may also call me in my office (x4306) for more urgent matters.
