Conduct in the Classroom
General Education Requirements
CONDUCT IN THE
The classroom setting offers a unique opportunity to
meet and interact with a diverse population of students and faculty as well as a
forum for new learning and a secure place to challenge existing ideas and
values. In order for all of us to benefit from this experience, certain types
of conduct must be adhered to:
1. Students and faculty are expected to attend all class sessions. If there
is a reason that requires an instructor to cancel a class session, the students
will be notified in as timely a manner as possible.
2. Excessive absences and/or lateness may result in a lowering of a student?s
grade or an invitation to drop the course.
3. Students and faculty are expected to be on time for class and to remain
until the class ends. Entering a class after it has started or leaving before
the class ends can be disruptive to the learning process.
4. Cell phones and pagers are also disruptive to the learning process. All
pagers and cell phones are to be turned off during class.
5. Students are responsible for all assignments and material covered in
class, whether or not they attend and regardless of the reasons for any absence.
6. Each student is expected to come to class prepared and to contribute to
class discussions. The expected ratio of outside time to class time is 3 to 1;
that is, for every credit hour, the student should spend 3 hours of study time,
or about 9 hours a week.
7. All students are expected to conduct themselves in accord with university
policies with respect to academic honesty as stated in the student handbook.
Anyone engaging in plagiarism, cheating, or any other form of academic
dishonesty should be prepared to receive a failing grade.
8. Polite, respectful classroom behavior is expected even when engaging in
discussions of controversial material. GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
