Faculty & Staff

Mary Patillo lectureMSA provides opportunities for faculty and staff to build relationships with our students outside of the classroom. We invite faculty and staff to serve on MSA committees and we offer space at our two facilities for office hours. If a faculty or staff member is interested in holding office hours at the MSA spaces, contact Colleen and Daphne.

MSA is glad to offer presentations, consultations, and trainings to faculty, staff, and departments on campus. Additional information on these services is available here.
