Last week, I resumed one-on-one office hours using Zoom. In one hour, I connected with a student about a refund concern, an incoming faculty member about his excitement to join UT, a political science lecturer who is with his family in Kuwait, where his wife is recovering from COVID-19, and a few others.
As our physical distance continues, these direct conversations with faculty, staff, and students have never been more important. I want to hear about how you’re doing, the challenges you’re tackling, and all the ways your important work is continuing even in these unusual circumstances. Let me know how we’re doing and share your ideas for how we can work more effectively in this new normal.
Zoom office hours will continue for the rest of the semester every Tuesday at 3 p.m. You will find the link on the campus calendar. I hope you’ll consider joining me sometime in the next few weeks to talk about whatever is on your mind.
