Contact information and office hours

The most reliable way to contact me is by email at acavende@saintmarys.edu. I check that account at least twice each day during usual business hours, Monday through Friday. Please note that I do not check email on Sundays — ever. I occasionally check on Saturdays, but not regularly. With those exceptions, I make every effort to respond to within 48 hours. If it’s been longer than that and you haven’t heard back, please don’t hesitate to check with me to be sure I received your message.

I’m also reachable by phone. My office phone is 574-284-4430.

My usual office hours are

  • 9:00-11:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

My office is Spes Unica 263.

If those times don’t work for you, I’m very happy to make alternate arrangements. Feel free to stop by the office to see if I’m in and it’s a good time; if it isn’t, we’ll arrange a time that works for both of us. Alternately, bring your calendar to class and we’ll set something up. If you use Google Calendar, my free/busy times are visible to everyone at Saint Mary’s, and you’re welcome to make an appointment on your calendar and invite me to the meeting.
