Faculty are required to provide, at the first class session, a syllabus for each course they teach. The syllabus should provide essential information about the course and department policies that affect the conduct of the course. Each department will maintain a file of current syllabi for all classes, which it should hold for at least two years.
All planned absences for legitimate professional or personal reasons must be approved in advance by the department chairperson or program director. In such cases, the instructor is responsible for arranging for a makeup class or alternative instructional activities. When an illness or unforeseen emergency results in the cancellation of a class, the instructor should notify the chairperson as soon as possible and arrange for notices to be posted informing students of the cancellation. In the event of an extended absence of the instructor, the chairperson is responsible for arranging for continuing instruction in the course.
