If you have some time during final exam week and can give us a three hour block of time for proctoring exams, please contact us.
This may be a good time for you to get some grading or reading done and, at the same time, provide a valuable service to the IC community. We can ask your deans and supervisors for release time, if necessary.
If you're interested, please contact Kelly Charnley for more information. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 274-1257.

Michael Kaneff ’13, a television-radio student major, uses his production skills to raise awareness for a medical condition that hits close to home: Muscular Dystrophy.
Kaneff’s mother was diagnosed with MD eight years ago. He now produces videos to connect with others affected by the disease and to help raise money for the cause.
"There are 41 types of Muscular Dystrophy, yet none have a cure," Kaneff said.
Each year, he works on a documentary that is screened at the Black and Blue Ball, a local fundraiser for more than 200 business owners and MD patients, in the hopes of inspiring guests to donate.
