Creating A Class Syllabus

Your syllabus is the most important document in your class.  It is the contract between you and your students about the requirements and objectives of the course. In addition, your syllabus provides a guiding reference--a resource to which students and instructional staff can refer for logistical information such as the schedule for the course and office hours, as well as rationale for the pedagogy and course content. Contact your department for more information and specific directions.

Many faculty include a link to the Student Code of Conduct in their syllabus. Student Life and Student Code of Conduct.

An example syllabus template is located in the Learning Resource Handbook.  Look for the Syllabus Template link near the bottom of the page.
