  • Quarterly face to face meeting of DM Leadership Team (DMLT).
  • Refer to LDM-294 for charter of the DMLT.


The meetings will be held on the 4th floor of the Keith Spalding Building in Room 410.

For those who have never been here previously, I have attached a campus map with the building marked with a red oval.  The address of the building is 1200 East California.  I have also marked closest place to park; there is an underground parking garage (actually under the baseball fields).  I have marked the pdf map with white arrows.  There are parking ticket machines in the garage as you come down the ramp and go to the right.  The doors on the Keith Spalding building are only unlocked on the EAST side of the building.  These are double glass doors that open automatically.  So if you find yourself at a locked door, you are likely on the West side of the building.

There is also an interactive online map at

The Keith Spalding Building is Building Number 6 on the maps.

Coffee and a light breakfast will be provided; lunch will be order in
