Student Success Initiative Funds at Work

How have SSI funds impacted library hours?

Comparing Fall 2013/Spring 2014 (before SSI funding) to Fall 2016/Spring 2017 (full SSI funding):

  • 20.25 extra hours have been added per week when classes are in session during the fall and spring semester, plus 24/7 during the 15th and 16th weeks of the semester,
  • this comes to an additional 280 weekly hours, excluding 24/7,
  • we have also expanded hours during the fall break by 11.25 hours and during the spring break by 13 hours,
  • in total, we have added 413 hours to the fall semester and 415 hours to the spring semester.

We have also expanded our intersession and summer hours. We close at 6:00pm rather than sometimes closing at 5:00pm. We open at 7:00am during the week, rather than 7:45am. We are also open on more weekends.
