For Faculty

We provide a variety of services for faculty, including training and support for courses and spaces for faculty reservation, including the Education Commons Seminar Room, WIC Seminar Room and two WIC alcoves. We request that faculty consider including some suggested language about WIC in course syllabi; for example, that students can receive assistance services here with research, writing, planning, speaking and technology, in addition to reserving group study spaces for general use.

The Weigle Information Commons Faculty Advisory Group meets once a semester and provides guidance on the content and structure of WIC activities. Interested faculty can email the Advisory Group.
