All meetings must have a virtual meeting component. This is to allow anyone who may be teleworking or who may not feel comfortable meeting in-person an opportunity to actively participate in the meeting. The Dean’s Suite has three options that we hope will assist you:

  • Option 1: Use conference rooms that have WebEx technology.
  • Option 2: Each meeting participant should bring their laptop or mobile device to the conference room if the room does not have WebEx technology.
  • Option 3: Each meeting participant should meet from their desk (on campus or at home) as they have since March 2020.
