The entire workshop will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the Stamp Student Union.  Please see the Transportation page for directions.

Please note: since the building is closed with the exception of the SEARCH conference, only three doors will be open.   These are: 1. the main “front door” on Campus Drive where the front desk is and the banners are on the outside, 2. The door just east of the front door, also on Campus Drive that leads directly into the stairs to the Grand Ballroom, 3. The upper side door on Union Lane, across from the Parking Garage.
