ISSS Staff Bios

ISSS staff are available to assist you with a variety of issues. In many instances you will need to schedule an appointment to speak with your advisor as only quick matters can be handled on a walk-in basis. Whenever possible, you are encouraged to email your questions to your advisor or to schedule an appointment for a more detailed discussion.

If you are unable to make a scheduled appointment, you should call ISSS ahead of time to let the advisor know you cannot make it.
