These hours will then be published and every effort must be made to maintain them.

Monitors are expected to be responsible w/re: to keeping their established hours and for notifying the supervisor if unable to keep their schedule. Preferred skills: Because the monitor is the only way for art students to gain access to the studios to work on their projects, they must be responsible.
