Meeting Request Forms

Can be completed and e-mailed or handed in to the Graduate Office Assistant or April Wettig in the Biology Graduate Office. 

Please note: When arranging a meeting, 30 minutes is added to the start time to allow you to set up. If you will be requiring Skype or Teleconference, then 1 hour is added to the start time to allow for set up. Therefore, the earliest you can have a meeting start (with an 8:30a set up) is 9:00a (if everyone will be attending in person) or 9:30a (if someone is joining remotely). Meetings must be held during regular University business hours (8:30a-4:30p) to allow you access to equipment (projectors and laptops) and access to rooms.
