How to Reach Faculty

Examples of Outreach
Most faculty and staff have office hours, which are designated times set aside for students to drop in with no appointment needed! Faculty office hours are often listed on course sites, department websites, or the Professors' email signatures. You can also email faculty to schedule a time to meet with them or confirm their availability during office hours.
For additional resources check out the Hiatt Outreach Template and the Sample Networking Questions.
