Alternate Class Activities for a Scheduled Class Meeting
When there are good pedagogical reasons for doing so, a faculty member may substitute alternative class activities, such as scheduling individual meetings with students or screening a film, for a regularly scheduled class meeting. If feasible, the faculty member should list such adjustments to the normal schedule of classes in the course syllabus. Any plans that involve canceling a substantial number of regularly scheduled class meetings should be reported to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Any decision to cancel class meetings must conform to the faculty’s policy requiring that classes met on the days before and after vacations.
