If serious illnesses, family emergencies, or other crises occur during the term, one of the key things you must do is to contact the Assistant Dean of your College as soon as possible. This office can assist you in notifying faculty and in validating for your teachers what has happened. Such validation will be necessary for you to make up missed classwork and assignments.
The Writing Center in 016 Memorial provides free one-on-one instruction to students who have writing assignments in this or any course. You may make an appointment by visiting the Center’s Web Site:www.cas.udel.edu/writing-center. (The telephone number is 831-1168.)
Any work that you submit at any stage of the writing process—draft, thesis and outline, bibliography, etc., through final version—must be your own; in addition, any words, ideas, or data that you borrow from other people and include in your work must be properly documented. Failure to do either of these things is plagiarism. The University of Delaware protects the rights of all students by insisting that individual students act with integrity. Accordingly, the University severely penalizes plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty.
Disabilities and Special Needs
If you need special assistance and/or classroom accommodations because of a disability, please let me know as soon as possible. To register and request accommodations, you will need to contact the Office of Disability Support Services. Their phone number is 302-831-4643 (TDD: 302-831-4563). More information can be found on their website: www.udel.edu/DSS.
A final expectation of the course is for you to complete the on-line student evaluation. This survey will be available for you to complete during the last two weeks of the semester. Apart from being an expectation of the course, your evaluation provides valuable information to me and to the Department.
