Faculty are responsible for establishing a positive learning environment by having well-planned and integrated lessons, considering student problems and questions, being available to help students, creating and maintaining a safe and civil classroom environment, and communicating clear expectations. Safety and civility standards are discussed in the civility statement in the Syllabus Template and the Student Handbook.

In order to protect the learning environment, faculty may contact campus security to facilitate the removal of an excessively disruptive student for a single class period. Removal of student must be reported in an Academic Misconduct Report.

Faculty are also expected to maintain an online presence through a course learning management system site.
