Syllabus Consultation

The syllabus sets the tone for the semester and may encourage students to reach out for help or clarification when they are struggling. Having a welcoming syllabus has an impact on the student experience, particularly because students revisit elements like grading policies at stressful points in the semester. Consulting with someone in GradSupport, S3, or TLL about the policies and tone in a syllabus can help provide a sense of how students might receive them and offer a chance to brainstorm other options which may work well.
