  • Please do not move or relocate these chairs.
  • If you notice that you have a chair marked with gold paint in your office, please return it to the classroom or contact Facilities to have it removed.
  • Students must request alternate chair accommodations with CAR each term, for each class.
  • If a student reports to you that their chair is missing or broken, please direct them to CAR.
