Mgmt 386: Management Information Systems

Instructor: Dr. Mary Lynn Manns

Drop-in Office Hours
Monday and Wednesday 10:00 - 11:00 and by appointment
The above hours are drop-in; no appointment is necessary.
I am also glad to make appointments outside of office hours.
If the drop-in office hours are not convenient, I will gladly schedule an appointment with you; in this case, I encourage you to adopt the professional approach of making an appointment rather than simply expecting I will be free to see you during times that are not designated as office hours.

Teaching is my responsibility. But learning is your responsibility. This means that it is your responsibility to ask if there is something you don't understand or if you have any concerns. I am easily reachable in any of the following ways:
* during my office hours
* by appointment outside my office hours
* via phone
* via email


Look for announcements here throughout the semester.
