If you’re looking for Dean Mark Taylor next week—or seven other members of his team—you’ll need to look across Mudd Field. They’ll be in temporary offices in Simon Hall for the next eight to 10 weeks.

The dean and other members of his staff will uproot from Bauer Hall’s fourth floor Xu Dean’s Suite effective Monday for a down-to-the-studs office renovation. Once the staff moves out, workers will remove all the furniture, cubicles, and walls to reconfigure the space.

Plans include reconfiguring the reception area and cubicle space; adding a large conference table; replacing one cubicle with an office; adding an eating area; and reducing the size of the existing work room.

“The key word around here is change,” said Joyce Montgomery, director of administration in the dean’s office.

Oh, and where will Dean Taylor and the rest of the group be? Find them in Simon Hall, offices 262 through 271.
