This email is being sent to all members of the Baruch College faculty.

For an archive of announcements sent from the Provost’s Office beginning June 2011, see http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/provost/archive.htm

 

 

A few reminders to all members of our community:

 

  • Please remember to erase everything written on the white boards as a courtesy to the next instructor.
  • Transition between successive classes occupying a classroom:  Students and instructors have a right to enter their room in a timely fashion, and instructors already in the room should not continue teaching past the end of the period. But departing students and instructors are also entitled to use a portion of the room for informal discussions in the minutes immediately following class. Both in-coming and out-going students and instructors should be respectful and accommodating during these transitional periods.
  • Please ask your students to clean up after themselves.
  • Don't forget to log off the lectern computer before you leave the room.
  • Please be sure to turn off the ceiling projectors when you finish using them; replacement bulbs are expensive. (The projectors turn off automatically only on certain settings.)
  • Please don't leave extra, un-used blue books in a classroom. Blue books should not be easily accessible: some students take extras and use them to camouflage the notes they bring into a closed-book exam.

 

All best wishes,

 

Dennis Slavin
