Policy and Procedure
STUDENT AFFAIRS OP 91.13: Contacting Students
Date: September 25, 2006
To provide guidelines for delivering messages to students while protecting the classroom process from disruption.
Students are not to be called from the classroom for any reason other than a dire emergency.
The need to confer with a student about financial, social, organizational, or conduct matters is not normally considered to be an emergency. Academic offices are not to be contacted for delivery of notices to students.
The University Police Department is not to be used as a messenger service except for extreme emergencies.
Whenever possible, death messages and other emergency messages will be delivered by professional staff.
The Vice President for Student Affairs is responsible for the review of this operating policy every four years or as needed.
