Expectations with Respect to Electronic Communications
Increasingly College faculty, staff and administrators are using electronic means to disseminate information to and communicate with students. This information may be important and/or time-sensitive. Thus, the expectations of the College are that:
Electronic communication (e.g., e-mail or the World Wide Web) may be required as part of courses and rotations. The requirements are to be specified in the course syllabus. If these requirements pose a problem for a student, the student must contact the instructor / coordinator to work out a solution. "System problems", however, are not the responsibility of the student.
In short, the lack of access to electronic communication is not a valid excuse for the failure to respond to a request, perform an assignment, or meet a deadline.
