A FINAL IMPORTANT NOTE: Because the topic of Racism and Prejudice is such a passionate area to most people, it is imperative that we respect all thoughts, ideas, and expressions of our fellow classmates. We insist complete and total openness for one person to express him or herself, and another to respectfully disagree with that view. We insist that the classroom be an open forum for these expressions, and that when all is said and done, we can perhaps take the perspective of another, and thus, enrich our own thoughts and ideas. Course Policies Incompletes A grade of “incomplete” “I” will be entered for any student who--due to extenuating circumstances or personal emergencies--does not complete all of the requirements for the course by the time of the final examination. Such extenuating circumstances may include major emotional traumas (i.e., death or major illness in the family) or personal injury or illness. Such extenuating circumstances DO NOT include missing examinations or discussion sections because of vacations, travel, out of town parties and weddings, forgetfulness, employment, or heavy course loads. I will require written documentation of any personal emergency interfering with the completion of your course work. All students are expected to anticipate examination conflicts and conflicting deadlines and should plan for them accordingly. Additionally, assignment of an incomplete may not be used to forestall a failing grade; students who do not complete all of the course requirements will receive a grade of “I” only if they have earned passing grades on the work they have completed. If students have not done passing work, they will receive a grade of “F” in the course. In the event that an incomplete is assigned, all outstanding work must be completed by the end of the semester immediately following the semester in which the “I” was assigned. An incomplete that is not finished by that time will convert to a grade of “F”. Accommodations for Disabilities It is University policy to provide, on a flexible and individualized basis, reasonable accommodations to students who have disabilities that may affect their ability to participate in course activities or to meet course requirements. Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact me as soon as possible to discuss their individual needs for accommodations and to give him a copy of the documentation provided by the Office of Disabled Student Development. All such conversations will be held in the strictest confidence. The University requires students with disabilities to register with the Office of Disabled Student Services (DSS), located in UH- 101 and at (714) 278 – 3112, in order to receive prescribed accommodations appropriate to their disability. Students requesting accommodations should inform the instructor during the first week of classes about any

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
