Chair, Faculty Council
Faculty, administrators, and trustees traditionally share governance of higher education institutions. The UNCSA Faculty Council serves as the executive committee of the Faculty, and convenes to advise the Chancellor on matters pertaining to the institution that are of interest and concern to the members of the Faculty. Faculty Council tackles matters of interest brought to the Council or discharges them to the four Faculty standing committees: Educational Policies, Faculty Development, Faculty Welfare, and Campus Development. In turn, Faculty Council communicates the analysis and advice conveyed by these standing to the Chancellor and the Faculty as deemed appropriate.
Contract between instructor and students, legal document, stipulating work requirements, grading and content and contact information.
Course Syllabus Guidelines
Students should expect to receive a course syllabus during the first week of class, preferably at the first meeting, which serves as a contract with the students and effectively communicates the mechanics of the course, the instructor’s expectations of student participation, and the methods used to evaluate students’ work.
The syllabus is a tool that answers some of the most basic questions that students need to know early in the course in order to lessen their anxiety and to set the tone of the learning environment.
Although there are necessary elements, and each school has a template for you to follow, they do allow individual discretion with regard to additional information which may be included.
Review and sign off on policies in SOLO.
