  1. Course objectives/student learning outcomes.
  2. A statement that course material may be used anonymously for assessment of program student learning outcomes (SLOs) addressed by the course.
  3. A statement that course materials may be used anonymously for assessment of Liberal Education Program (LEP) student learning outcomes (SLOs).
  4. Requirements: texts and materials, approximate dates and formats for tests/papers/projects.
  5. Evaluation procedures: attendance, assignments, grading scale.
  6. A statement on any artifacts that will be used for campus-wide LEP or program assessment.
  7. Disability statement.
  8. Student conduct including academic honesty policy.

Faculty maintain the right to make changes to a syllabus. The instructor will communicate the changes to the students. Faculty members are expected to develop their own syllabi, and to cite sources when incorporating others’ material.
