When taking a late summer picnic, choose washable, reusable cloth napkins and tablecloths - check your closets again for old bandanas and bed sheets that you don’t mind getting dirty.
Questions, concerns, ideas? E-mail Allison.

• Day: Every Tuesday
• Time: 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
• Dates: August 16 - December 6
• Location: Room 72 McVey Hall
There is no need to register for the class, which will go over a web based version of the electronic Internal Approval Form (e-IAF) that allows routing via workflow and electronic signatures. The e-IAF form is now available university wide. For questions or assistance with the e-IAF process, faculty and staff should notify their College Grants Officer (CGO) to assist them. If there is not a CGO, the Research Administrator (RA) should be contacted to assist. More information about the e-IAF can be found on the OSPA forms page. The hope is that the e-IAF process will reduce the administrative burden on researchers and staff.Back to Top
