Office Hours


If you have questions after reviewing the website and program pages, or just want to discuss more, you can schedule an appointment with any of the UROC staff by clicking the links below to sign up for a meeting.


Note: UROC staff are meeting with students for scheduled appointments both virtually and in-person. For virtual meetings, the staff member will confirm Zoom links after you schedule your meeting. In-person meetings need to be scheduled in advance and students will wait at the SSB 230 front desk for the staff to meet them. You can also send us a message us on Microsoft Teams to communicate.
