The following is a list of the services available to faculty and staff from the lab support staff. All requests for sevices should be directed to Jan Largent.

Lab Services

  • Lab section assignments. At the beginning of each term, the students in lab courses need to be assigned to lab sections. These are done each term during the first week of class.
