Dr. Hackbert does not teach in the spring semester. He designs the EPG Summer Institute during the spring semester and thus frequently is not in the office, but “outside the building” developing community partnerships. When not “outside the building” he summarizes his work “inside the building” in his office and his door is open. The recommendation is to contact him via email for his office phone for office appointments, or contact Lyndsey Mullins (Ext 3614) to confirm his daily “inside or outside the building” spring semester schedule.
