Faculty Absences

Faculty Absences

If a faculty member becomes ill (see Sick/Medical Leave ), has a family emergency or other legitimate reason to cancel a scheduled class, including participation at a conference or other professional development opportunity, he/she should contact the Office of Academic Affairs and his/her Department Chair. If class is to be cancelled, the Chair or faculty member will notify students by email of the cancellation. If a faculty member anticipates an extended absence, he/she must contact the VPAA/Dean of Faculty to move to Short Term Disability.
