All students should act with a mutual commitment to personal integrity, respect other students’ dignity, rights and property, and help create and maintain an environment in which all can succeed and earn the trust and respect of others. This includes honesty and responsibility in representing your own work and acknowledging the contribution of others. For this reason, academic dishonesty is taken very seriously.
The submissions of courses, either temporary or permanent, follows the Penn State Faculty Senate submission and approval processes. If you are interested in improving existing courses as well as support innovative and timely new course proposals, you must contact Cindy Bierly, Coordinator for Undergraduate Studies or Michelle Hill, Coordinator for Graduate Programs for each corresponding area. The procedures vary widely for each area and committee review is required within the College.
Faculty requiring course related supplies and materials for the classroom should e-mail their requests in advance to Cindy Bierly, to include the item(s) to be purchased, quantity, estimated cost (if known), and descriptive reason on how the item(s) will be used. Requests will then be brought to Associate Dean Rosson for review. If approved, the Associate Dean’s Office will pay the cost up front so there are no out of pocket expenses. Faculty should NOT purchase course related supplies and submit for reimbursement afterwards. Prior approval is required.
Note: Basic supplies for all faculty are kept in stock in the Dean's Office, 332 IST. This is managed by Debbie Kozel.
