Extension requestEdit

New start and end dateEdit

January 1, 2018-December 31, 2018

Our actual timeline activities will be unchanged by the start date extension, only the dates ranges in which these activities occur will change.

RationaleEdit

We would like this project to begin on January 1, 2018, with an end date of December 31, 2018. This start date would allow the project to begin at a natural start point in the academic calendar, give the WiR additional planning time before the grant start date, and allow the WiR to grow her work at WVU in the interim. In addition, the WiR’s position will continue to be funded by WVU until the January 1, 2018 proposed start date. We prefer that the first installment of the grant be sent prior to the January 1, 2018 start.

Karen Diaz, Interim Dean of Libraries at WVU and a mentor on this project, has been consulted and approved this request on behalf of WVU in support of the work of the WiR. KellyDoyle (talk) 21:39, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Request approvedEdit

I am approving a new start date of January 1, 2018 and a new end date of December 31, 2018 for this project. Marti (WMF) (talk) 22:51, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
