MSPM Orientation Student & Alumni Reception, 15 Aug
All current MSPM students are invited to attend the 15 Aug reception hosted by the GW MS in Project Management Alumni Network. This will be a great opportunity to welcome the incoming class of MSPM students and to connect with MSPM alumni.
Hors d’ouevres, beer and wine will be served. Registration is requested, however the event is free of charge. Event will take place in Duques Hall, 6th floor, from 6:30 to 8 pm next Friday.
Religious Observances and Holidays
GW’s policy regarding accommodations for religious holidays may be found on the Office of the Provost website. This is a reminder that students must notify faculty during the first week of the semester of their intention to be absent from class on their day(s) of religious observance. The fall semester begins 25 Aug.
Blackboard Access and Blackboard Collaborate Schedule
The faculty will make their classes available on Blackboard no later than the first day of the class. Some may actually open the Blackboard site before the start of the semester. Please remember to use the GWeb Info Systems site to confirm your course registrations for the fall, this is the official site to do so.
The Blackboard Collaborate schedule has been posted to the blog at www.gwprojectmanagement.org for the distance/online classes. Your professor will also confirm the schedule in the course syllabus and in the first lecture. Contact your professor for any questions regarding the scheduled Blackboard Collaborate sessions.
