Office Hours (in-person support)

In response to recent events and effective Monday, March 16, the CITI ACDS team is now delivering Palmetto office-hours, consultations, and training online via web-conferencing. In particular, the weekly Wednesday office-hours and Friday on-boarding will be hosted online via Zoom. Furthermore, all training will also be delivered online through Zoom. These changes will remain in place until the university provides further direction. Please follow our guidelines outlined below:

You will receive an email from Zoom that confirms your registration and contains the activation link. If you do not receive an email within an hour, please notify

  2. Once you have access to Zoom, please use the following link to go to our Zoom channel and register for the date/time that works for you:
