Media Consultation Appointment:

Get help with a media project by making an appointment to sit down with a professional consultant! Appointments must be made between the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday-Friday. Please make your appointment with at least one week of notice to insure the best chance of finding a time that works for you and your consultant. We are unable to accommodate multiple consultations for the same individual unless it is for an entirely different task, however, both your consultant and/or the SMART Learning Commons ( desk staff will be able to give you limited on-demand support during staffed hours. If you will be late or must reschedule you must contact the consultant directly or the SMART Learning Commons. Failing to notify us may result in not being able to reschedule. Your consultation appointment generally will last 1 hour for most appointments. Questions? You can contact Jennifer Veile (
