Presenter: Lee Townsend, Assistant Professor, College of Engineering, Technology & Architecture

Thursday, September 28, 12:15–1:15 p.m.

Prerequisites: This session is for intermediate to advanced users of Excel

In this continuing professional development series, Lee Townsend, assistant professor in the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture will be presenting and guiding us in an interactive session on Excel’s date and time functions. We will examine how to use the built-in date and time functions in Microsoft Excel to perform complex date and time calculations. Excel stores all dates as integers and all times as decimal fractions. With this system, Excel can add, subtract, or compare dates and times just like any other numbers, and all dates are manipulated by using this system. This session is open to both PC and Mac users; however, Mac users will need to bring their laptops, as we do not have Macs on hand for participants to use. Faculty and Staff are invited to join us for this Excel SIG session in the Woods Classroom, in Harrison Libraries. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible to These informal gatherings are open to all instructors and staff, and are designed to provide a forum for sharing ideas and effective techniques for using Excel in the classroom or in our daily university work. They typically include a brief (15-20 minute) presentation by a faculty member on his or her use of Excel, followed by a hands-on activity and an informal–and lively–conversation.
