Faculty, lecturers and TAs should hold office hours to answer students’ questions, preferably at least 2-4 hours a week. To update your office hours, please visit https://accounts.soe.ucsc.edu/directory at your convenience. A list of faculty office hours will automatically post on the SOE web page, http://www.soe.ucsc.edu/people/faculty. If you cannot be present during office hours, it is advised to place a note on your door and/or email email@example.com to post signage for you.
Absence from Teaching
Faculty informs their Department Chair and Department Manager of any absences and faculty are responsible for arranging for a substitute instructor. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the substitute instructor for informational purposes in case questions arise.
Use the following procedure to cancel a class:
- Faculty informs their students by email and also lists on their class web page of all class cancellations.
- Notify Instructional Support at email@example.com with the date of the class cancellation and if a makeup class should be rescheduled. This is critical for distance learning classes. Instructional support will post signage at the classroom.
- Notify the Undergraduate or Graduate Office if you plan to be absent so that they can answer any questions from students.
