NOTICE: Open Forum for UW students, faculty, and staff to learn about upcoming changes in Mary Gates Hall
This summer, the University of Washington’s goal of serving students in a more seamless way will take another step forward. Construction in the Computing Resource Center on the first floor of Mary Gates Hall will begin in July to make possible the co-location of some programs in the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity and Undergraduate Academic Affairs. Programs that complement one another but currently are located across campus from each other will be housed in Mary Gates Hall, providing students a logical path to key student resources from the time they enter the University to the time they graduate.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to a public forum to answer questions about the upcoming moves and construction. The forum will be held Wednesday, April 21, at 4:30 p.m. in the Career Center on the first floor of Mary Gates Hall.
Addressing questions will be:
- Sheila Edwards-Lange, vice president and vice provost of Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity
- Eric S. Godfrey, vice president and vice provost of Student Life
- Ed Taylor, vice provost and dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs
- Kelli Trosvig, interim vice president and vice provost of UW Information Technology
- Cynthia Fugate, associate dean of the University Libraries
- A representative from the Office of Planning and Budgeting, Capital Resource Planning
Programs that will be co-located include:
- The Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity’s Counseling Services with Undergraduate Advising and Academic Support Programs in Undergraduate Academic Affairs.
- The Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity’s Early Identification Program, McNair Program, and Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program with the Center for Experiential Learning.
