The Faculty and Staff Training Room, located in room 4066 of the Classroom Building, can be a very busy place. As the primary facility of the Client Service Center (see article on page 1), it serves as a regular retreat for those wishing to improve their technology skills. Workshops and open lab sessions are held on a monthly basis. In addition, the room is used regularly by several departments across campus, such as Human Resources and the Controller's Office.
What many of you may not know is that this room is available to be used for any faculty and staff training event. The schedule for room use can be found on the web at: http://www.neiu.edu/~trainme/
