The Evening/Weekend Office (EWO) is a special resource on the Rockville campus that has existed for more than 20 years to support the part-time faculty. It was established initially to provide office support and working space for part-time faculty members at those times when academic department offices were traditionally closed, evenings and weekends. It now also provides support throughout the day as well to many part-time faculty members whose academic department facilities are not large enough to provide a full range of part-time faculty support services.
