Westphal Research

URBN Center Research Help

As some of you know, I held office hours in the URBN Center at the end of last term. I did so on a limited basis as a trial and I feel it was a success. I helped several students, met with a few faculty, and was able to make an impromptu appearance in a couple of classes. For the end of the spring term, I will be holding office hours in room 440 on Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm and Thursdays from 9am-11am beginning on May 15th until June 6th.

Research Connections

Drexel faculty are invited to join colleagues and liaison librarians for the opening of a renovated space in W. W. Hagerty Library. Research Connections, Room 210, is a designated faculty space within the library that provides faculty a collaborative environment for researchers from across the University to gather to reflect, share, present, and/or discuss research, interdisciplinary ideas or projects of mutual interest.
