In my last post, I shared the student conduct guidelines that the faculty in the College of Business at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee developed and that are now posted on our website. The faculty thought we should also be held to a professional code of conduct and thus developed the following list:
What you can expect from your College of Business professors:
We will be civil, professional, and ethical in our interactions with you and treat you with respect and dignity.
We will be on time to class and fully prepared to teach using relevant and up-to-date pedagogy.
We will turn off our cell phones before class and refrain from checking messages, thus giving you our undivided attention.
We will follow the grading scale, course policies, exam dates, etc. listed in the syllabus and will not change these policies or dates during the semester without adequate communication.
We will respond to your email questions and grade assignments, quizzes, papers, and exams in a timely manner.
We will be available (and happy to) meet with you to discuss classes, assignments, career choices, etc., as needed.
Our goal is to help you learn what it takes to be successful in the business world. Let’s work together to make you as prepared as possible for your future careers.
