The Wilks Institute for Leadership and Service Office Access & Hours

Please call to schedule a virtual appointment; walk-in appointments are limited and need to follow safety guidelines. We are excited to welcome new and returning students to our leadership, service, and civic engagement programming virtually until our full return to campus. As these guidelines change, our events and opportunities will too. Stay connected through the Wilks Institute website.

The Wilks Office (Armstrong 2018), staff offices, and certain access points will have modified hours in conjunction with the Armstrong Student Center schedule. The reduction of facility hours will allow for ample cleaning time of the facility during the overnight hours.

Major entrances will be designated as entrance only, or exit only, with modifications for accessible access points.
