Faculty Handbook

F. Instructor Absences

Instructors are expected to be present for all scheduled class sessions. In the event of an absence due to unresolvable scheduling conflicts or unforeseen circumstances, instructors should follow this protocol:

  • Complete the Class Cancellation Form, which can be found on the faculty portal under Applications and Forms. The Office of the Registrar will post a notification of the class cancellation on the classroom door and on the student portal.
  • Instructors are advised to assign an alternative assignment or group activity in lieu of the class meeting.

Class cancellations are tracked by the Office of the Registrar and are reported, if needed, to the appropriate dean and provost. Excessive absences may result in administrative attention and performance assessment.
