Presidential Office Hours for Faculty, Staff and Students

President Battles greets student

Members of the SUNY Geneseo community have a shared interest in making our College the very best it can be. With the aim of expanding the opportunities for personal engagement and exchange of ideas for institutional enhancement, President Battles invites campus community members to meet with her during office hours.

Meetings will take place in the President’s office, located in room 310 of Doty Hall and will be made available to individuals or small groups of up to three. To maximize the opportunities for access by College community members, each meeting will be scheduled for 15 minutes, and first time participants will be given priority.

Requests may be made through the online form below and should be made no less than one week in advance. Those submitting requests should be sure to complete the topic section, as any matters that are more appropriately addressed by other College personnel will be rerouted in order to facilitate prompt consideration (For example: grade disputes, personnel issues and salary increases, media requests, etc.).

Requestors are asked to indicate their availability by selecting one or more time-slots; specifying more than one will assist in the scheduling process. A subsequent email message will confirm scheduled appointments.

  • Tuesday, February 5: 1 p.m.
