If you've seen the moving trucks outside the Browning Building this week, you might be wondering what changes are afoot. Once more, multiple offices are switching places in a dance that has been coined the “Browning Shuffle.”

Dr. Sherry Hoppe says, “The initial motivation for the move was in response to the suggestion in the state comptroller's report that Richard Jackson [senior advisor to the president's office] should be more accessible.” In order to reach Jackson's former office, faculty, staff and students had to enter through the reception area of the Office of Student Affairs. He needed a space where people could approach him privately.

“As we looked to resolve that, we also decided that a more neutral setting would be good for internal audit, which is currently inside the business office,” says Hoppe. “To find appropriate space for Richard and Jackie [Struckmeyer, internal auditor], we had to start another ‘Browning Shuffle.'”

So, where did your favorite office go? Here's a brief moving guide:

•Telephone Services is moving from Browning 138 to Browning 133.
•Struckmeyer is moving from Browning 133 to Browning 151.
•Jackson is moving from Browning 126 to Browning 151.
•The Office of Finance and Administration and Sonja Stewart, director for budget and planning, are moving from Browning 151 to Browning 115.
•The Office of Student Affairs (which provides student services, student development programs, support services and activities) is moving from Browning 115 to UC 206.
•The Office of Student Development (which promotes academic success) is relocating from UC 206 to UC 208.
