 Dear Students:

     Given that our department's syllabus template is now located in D2L, I've decided to use that platform for all course communications, including reading assignments and reminders about quizzes.  I will not be utilizing my web site for my classes.  I have updated my office hours here, but for all other information, please see your course infromation in D2L.
