MERIT Staff to Move January 5

The School of Education is relocating MERIT’s Education Building offices to the Teacher Education Building and the Career Center to the Education Building in an effort to better serve our students and departments. The MERIT move will happen on January 5, 2016.

In a memo circulated to chairs and directors in late September, Dean Diana Hess stated “These relocations are opportunities for both units to develop new collaborative relationships and centralize the services they provide across the School.”

Dean Hess further wrote:

MERIT’s support of the School of Education’s information and technology environment will be aided by:

-Providing a one-stop experience for students, staff, and faculty who rely on MERIT services

-Creating a more cohesive environment for MERIT staff, providing better adjacencies, and more opportunities for informal communication and colleague coverage on service delivery

-Improving the School’s public information environment for faculty, staff, students, alumni, PK12 teachers, and the general public

MERIT appreciates the cooperation of our patrons and clients as we’ve prepared for the move. Email and telephone numbers will remain the same.
