Eastman students value a structured and detailed syllabus.  In addition to a brief course description and statement of the course’s aims, most syllabi list requirements, attendance policies, texts, grading policy (e.g. the percentage of the grade to be determined by papers, exams, attendance, and participation), and a detailed schedule of assignments. In addition, syllabi should include a statement about academic integrity and instructions to students about disability accommodations. Faculty are encouraged to include the following statement on all course syllabi:

Any student with a documented disability needing academic accommodations should contact the Access Coordinator (26 Gibbs St, ESM 102, 585.274.1165) as early in the semester as possible.  All discussions will remain confidential.
