current Department hours of Operation
Like most departments at WMU, the Mathematics Department, along with other Departments in Everett Tower and Rood Hall, are dealing with the current pandemic in ways consistent with building reopen plans that somewhat restrict access to both the buildings and the faculty we are used to in normal times. With the new Governor orders (as of 11/18/20), the Department and many of the faculty will continue to work remotely with NO in-person main office presence until at least 12/08/20. If you wish to reach staff in the main Math Office, please leave a message at 269-387-4513 and those inquiries will be checked periodically through 12/08/20. If you know the specific extension for office personnel, you can still contact them directly. You can find specific contact information in our director.
