The School of Outdoor Recreation, Parks & Tourism strives to create a culture of respect in all our learning environments.
Principles to keep in mind:
- We all have the right to learn.
- We all share in the responsibility to not deprive others of their right to learn.
- We are all part of a community that is committed to respect for all individuals, regardless of gender, race, sex, class, sexual orientation, ability, body size, age, religion, and national origin.
- We are all accountable for our actions and for our words.
Please contribute to an engaging and respectful learning environment by:
- Attending all scheduled classes and arriving on time. Late arrivals and early departures are very disruptive.
- Being prepared for each class (e.g. readings, appropriate outdoor clothing, assigned tasks completed).
- Not engaging in side conversations, as they make listening difficult for others.
- Not scheduling other activities during this class time.
- Sitting in the last row, if you need to use your laptop for matters related to the course. This will prevent your screen activity from distracting other students.
- Letting your instructor(s) know immediately if you are experiencing a problem that is preventing you from performing satisfactorily in this class.
- Making use of scheduled office hours to discuss course material with your instructors.
- Not expecting instructors to check or respond to emails according to your own tight schedule or deadline, especially in the evenings, on weekends, or at the end of field trips.
- Asking for help on an assignment only after you have truly tried to resolve issues yourself.
- Not coming to a meeting for help on an assignment unprepared.
- Not using cell phones or texting during class time
