There is no UWRF or CBE required minimum number of office hours. The expectation is that faculty will be available frequently enough to satisfy student needs. Availability includes face-to-face conversations, e-mail, telephone, on-line discussion boards, or any other means of helping students. Over the years, our practice has been to post and maintain a minimum of 6 to 8 office hours per week spread across the days one teaches. In general, CBE faculty members are available much more than the minimum number of hours.
