Faculty & Staff Resources

For Faculty

Faculty Notification of Emergencies and Extended Class Absences, also commonly referred to as "emergency emails", is to inform faculty in a timely manner when students will be out of class for an unforeseen emergency or crisis.  Generally, a notification is sent for students who have experienced a situation where they need to leave immediately to address a personal issue, which may include a death in the family, a serious injury, illness or hospitalization.

Our office does not excuse absences and we strongly encourage students to connect with faculty as soon as is practical and when they return to determine the best course of action for the class.  The email will always contain language that reminds the student that we do not excuse absences.

There is no expectation or requirement that students contact our office or request a faculty notification if they are capable of doing so themselves.  We generally do not notify faculty "after the fact" or if students tell us that they have already contacted the faculty and made them aware of the situation on their own.
