CLASSROOM POLICIES: Communicating with the Instructor There are several ways to contact me; however, for classes taught on campus I prefer face-to-face communication. You are strongly encouraged to see me before and after class and during office hours. You may leave a voice-mail message, and you may send an email either via Oncourse or regular email. I check voice mail and email once or twice a day Monday through Friday. Expect 24 hours for a reply. Ordinarily, I do not check voice mail and email during the weekend. I do not use email as instant messaging . If you have a question that requires more than a simply yes or no response, please see me in person or call. Special note about e-mail: If you send an email to me using regular email (not Oncourse mail), use your IUPUI account. Email from Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL and many other accounts, including where you work, are subject to being treated as spam by IUPUI. I am aware of several instances when students sent emails to me but they were treated as spam, and I never saw them. You may not be aware that IU has a policy regarding email: http://bursar.iupui.edu/dh/Email_Importance.htm There are two pertinent parts of that policy: "Students who choose to have their email forwarded to a private (unofficial) email address outside the official university network address, do so at their own risk. The University is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the proper or timely transmission or access of email forwarded to any unofficial email address, and any such problems will not absolve students of their responsibility to know and comply with the content of official communications sent to students’ official IU email addresses. "Faculty may assume that a student’s official university email is a valid mechanism for communicating with a student, although faculty should exercise caution about including sensitive data, such as grades, in an email." If you need help with you IUPUI email, go to http://uits.iu.edu/scripts/ose.cgi?amag.ose.help Statement on Civility The IUPUI’s Chancellor’s statement of civility states, “Because the university is so complex and diverse… we will not always agree with one another. When we disagree it must be done with civility. We encourage everyone to speak and act judiciously and with respect for one another.” Civility requires that even when we are angry or upset we carefully choose our words and actions. Treat your professor and classmates with courtesy, respect, and civility at all times. I strive to provide an environment that fulfills the University's goal of enhancing the values that allow us to preserve,
