A new year is upon us, and with it some positive, yet significant, changes. Please take a moment to look over what is listed below, and help us to continue to meet the needs you require.
- Directorship – David LaPalombara is the lab’s new Interim Director. David will be donating his time, from his directorship of the School of Art, to help sustain the @Lab this year. If you bump into him, please be sure to  thank him, and  let him know your feelings regarding how the lab affects you.
- Committee – The College of Fine Arts Dean’s Office has invited one faculty/staff from each School to help direct the @Lab’s course. If you bump into a participant, please be sure to  thank them, and  let them know your feelings regarding how the lab affects you. They are listed by school:
- School of Art – Rajorshi Ghosh
- School of Dance – John Bohuslawky
- School of Film – Tom Hayes
- School of Music – Andre Gribou
- School of Theater – Michael Lincoln
- Lab Access – From here on in, all after-hour lab access and/or equipment checkouts will go through our Project Proposal system. In short, what this means is that if you want access to the lab beyond 5pm, or want to checkout equipment, you must submit a Project Proposal. Visit our Participate & Forms pages to learn more. We are requiring this for two concise reasons. First, it is to your benefit to have your work be textualized, scrutinized, and documented. Secondly, in order for the @Lab to continue to support your needs, we need deeper involvement.
- Equipment Access – From here on in, accessing our resources will become a little less free-form. With changes in Lab Access, staffing, and budget, we needed to change how access is handled. All equipment check-outs and check-ins will be conducted from 9am – noon & 1pm -3pm only however, overdue equipment will be handled more strictly.
- Tutorials / Workshops – The lab’s Operations Coordinator, Nathaniel Berger, will be hosting a few for-credit tutorials throughout the year. Dates and topics have not yet been finalized, but you should expect to see two to three per quarter, covering topics that affect your work. Please ask about it, and follow up with him.
