MMLC speaks to CLI

The core services and resources of the MMLC were introduced to new and returning language faculty at the annual fall meeting of the Council on Language Instruction (CLI), Friday, September 21. At the meeting, attendees learned that, with the increasing demand placed on MMLC facilities, the importance of advance reservations has increased significantly.

Faculty should make room and routine AV equipment needs known as soon as possible to the appropriate members of the MMLC.

In the case of room reservations:
  Ann Marshall

In the case of equipment reservations and/or AV-Services:
  Cecile-Anne Sision

In the case of project development (involving Mark, Matt, or Zach):
  Janine Spencer, Director
