The Office of Human Resources is pleased to offer Zoom office hours for staff and faculty as an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and receive information on a variety of topics. Throughout the month of October, we will offer a chance to see what the Workday experience looks like and what tasks you can do in the new system during the OHR Office Hours.
The second half of the hour will be open for general OHR Office Hours. We will review recent communications and important developments in the workplace as the semester progresses, and provide a resource takeaway to support effective communication within departments. You will also have opportunities to hear specific tips and best practice examples from other supervisors/department chairs.
Please see the OHR Newsletter or the Daily Mammoth for the Zoom link. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the access information.
We look forward to connecting with you!
The Putnam Competition is a national mathematics exam for undergraduate students. It is both a challenging and fun exam, in which you will practice your problem-solving and proof-writing skills. Most of the problems require basic calculus and algebra knowledge, so first-year students are encouraged to participate.
Putnam sessions are an informal and friendly chance to meet other students and talk about problem solving. Typically we will share some problems in advance to think about, have a focused discussion at the beginning of the session and then discuss some of the problems together and have students present solutions. The meetings will be on Zoom. If you are interested, please contact Prof. Ivan Contreras (times subject to change).
