Course Syllabi

The syllabus is an important tool to welcome and orient students to your course.  Learner-centered syllabi are written to students, use clear language, a warm tone, and seek to avoid overly contractual or adversarial language. The following resources are provided to support faculty in the development of a learner-centered course syllabus and policies.
