Contact information and office hours

The most reliable way to contact me is by email at acavende [at] Please note that I do not check email on Sundays — ever. I sometimes check on Saturdays, but not regularly. With those exceptions, I make every effort to respond to within 48 hours. If it’s been longer than that and you haven’t heard back, please don’t hesitate to check with me to be sure I received your message.

I’m also reachable by phone. My office phone is 574-284-4430.

My usual office hourse are MWF 9:00 – 10:00 and MW 1:00 – 2:00 in Spes Unica 263. If those times don’t work for you, I’m happy to make alternate arrangements. Feel free to stop by the office to see if I’m in and it’s a good time; if it isn’t, we’ll arrange a time that works for both of us. Alternately, bring your calendar to class and we’ll set something up. If you use Google Calendar, my free/busy times are visible to everyone at Saint Mary’s, and you’re welcome to make an appointment on your calendar and invite me to the meeting.
