The Board meets 3 times during each fall and spring semester. The meeting schedule will be determined by advisors' availability. Advisors also meet individually with User Experience unit employees on a monthly basis to participating in usability tests, feedback sessions, surveys, prototyping, or other user experience research methods. To protect health and safety and maintain social distancing, all business will be conducted virtually until further notice.
