An Alternative to Canceling Class

Occasionally, you may need to miss a class to attend a conference, perform jury duty, or observe a religious holy day. With advance notice and planning, the Career Center, the Counseling & Mental Health Service, and the Academic Resource Center all offer programs for when a professor has to miss a class.

The Career Center program Don’t Cancel that Class! allows faculty members to schedule an in-class workshop by a career counselor. You may choose from  a menu of programs or work with the staff to customize a course for your class. 

The Counseling and Mental Health Service (CMHS) offers two workshops, subject to staff availability: 1) Mindfulness and Meditation for Stress Reduction; and 2) Mental Health Matters: How to Help a Peer. For more information, contact Marilyn Downs, CMHS Director of Outreach. 

The Academic Resource Center (ARC’s) Time Management & Study Strategy Consulting Program can present workshops on topics such as effective test taking and study strategies, reading strategies, time management and more.
