“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery."
– Octavia Butler, “Parable of the Talents (Earthseed, #2)'”
Welcome to the Spring 2021 Semester. We have moved our offices to temporary quarters at 156 William Street, 5th floor, while more permanent offices are being designed and built for us across the street. The new offices will be available later in 2021.
The temporary offices have two computer labs with 12 computers in each, so students can social distance. The 5th floor space also has a waiting area/student lounge with couches, a couple of tables and chairs and two vending machines. It’s a great space.
The labs will be open during the week from 11 to 4 Monday through Thursday.
As you know, we are mostly virtual this semester, but staff and faculty will be in the offices throughout the week.
