Glenn’s Office Hours: Fall 2021 between 8/23 and 12/16.

Tuesdays, 3:00-4:45pm (exceptions noted below)

Wednesdays, 12:30-2:30pm (exceptions noted below)

Fridays, 2:00-3:50pm (exceptions noted below)

(with the exceptions of 10/12, 11/12, and 11/24-26)

NOTE: Due to the extenuating circumstances associated with the COVID pandemic, note that my hours are to be held both in-person (with masks) and remotely.

To meet with me remotely during my hours, please do the following:

  1. Join my WebEx room during my  hours. You will start in the “waiting room” and I will add you in when there’s an opening. IMPORANT: You MUST EMAIL ME to let me know that you are in my waiting room (during my office hours).
  2. If that is not feasible, we can FaceTime or just have a phone call. If this is best for you, please email me DURING MY OFFICE HOURS to let me know and we’ll figure it out.*

Note that I do not take appointments but, rather, my hours are “walk-in” / first-come, first serve. You may have to wait a little bit, but I always make sure to get to everyone.

*This point of emailing me DURING as opposed to PRIOR TO my hours is critical and it relates to the excessive amount of email that I get — it is designed to help you, the student.

Evolution is nothing more than a “statistical bias in the rate of perpetuation of alternatives.” G. C. Williams (1966, p. 22).

“Even though the cavemen don’t seem like they were having much fun, I bet they were!” M. Geher (2012).
