  • Class Cancellations

    The decision to cancel classes should be taken very seriously. The reputation of the College and the integrity of the academic program rely on every class being conducted according to the schedule. Faculty should discuss their approach to class cancellation with students well in advance, ideally at the beginning of the semester. Normally, faculty members are responsible for notifying students of the decision to cancel a class directly (e.g. via an announcement in a prior class or by e-mail). The following guidance is provided with regard to class cancellations:

    Anticipated Absence
    If you know that you will not be present for a class because you will be attending a conference or engaged in another professional activity, announce this information to your students well in advance, on the syllabus if possible. Try to arrange for a colleague to teach the class on the day(s) that you will be away or discuss alternative activities or assignments with the students and make it clear how the time will be made up. Although you may try to reschedule the class, you should assume that our students’ complex schedules may make it difficult or impossible to do this.

    Emergency Absence
    Occasionally a medical or personal emergency arises which necessitates your canceling a class at the last minute. There are many variables involved in this kind of situation: meeting time of the class (day/evening), time remaining before the class meets, class size, etc. It is your responsibility to use good judgment to make the best of this unfortunate situation. If you can notify your students individually by phone or e-mail, this is the best alternative. If your situation prevents you from doing this, you should call the Office of the Dean of Faculty at x18218 (909.621.8218) or email DoFcore@pitzer.edu and ask to have your students notified in class (be prepared to provide the time and meeting location of your class).

  • Classrooms

    Initial Classroom Assignments: Initial classroom assignments are made by the Registrar’s Office based on information submitted on the faculty course form(s). In cases of competing requests, the Registrar’s Office will consult with the Associate Dean of Faculty, who will find alternate arrangements as needed.

    Changes After Initial Assignments Have Been Made: Please contact the Registrar’s Office at Registrar@pitzer.edu if classroom changes are needed.

    Smart Classrooms: All classrooms are “smart.” For audio visual support, please contact Audio Visual Services at x72638 (909.607.2638).

    Classroom Priority Scheduling for West Hall Q116 and Q120, Broad Hall 210 and 214, and Avery 201:

    The Offices of the Dean of Faculty and the Registrar schedule classroom space. Due to the technological and pedagogical needs (i.e. high definition projectors and light-blocking window shades) of various fields, for example Intercollegiate Media Studies, Art History, and Media Studies programs, the following priority scheduling for rooms will occur.

    1. For Avery 201, Broad Hall 210, and Broad Hall 214:
      Art History and Classics courses will have priority scheduling for those classrooms, followed by Intercollegiate Media Studies. Once these courses have been scheduled, the room is available for all other disciplines to schedule their courses.
    2. For West Hall Q116 and Q120:
      Intercollegiate Media Studies will have priority scheduling for those classrooms, followed by Art History and Classics. Once these courses have been scheduled, the room is available for all other disciplines to schedule their courses.

    Student Conference Travel
    Travel, registration, room and board costs for students who are presenting papers at academic conferences, who are working with Pitzer faculty are eligible for funding. Funding ranges from $200 to $500, depending on cost of airfare, registration and hotel. In all cases, students are encouraged to minimize costs wherever possible (e.g. sharing a hotel room with fellow student presenters). Students must furnish documentation confirming that their papers have been accepted for presentation at the conference. Applications for funding must be submitted prior to attending to Natalie Rosales in Scott Hall 109 (Natalie_Rosales@pitzer.edu). Students will receive responses from the Dean of Faculty’s Office to their application for travel awards within 10 working days. Students must present original receipts to Natalie Rosales in the Dean of Faculty’s Office to be reimbursed.

    Should you wish to be reimbursed for expenses before a trip takes place (airfare, conference registration fees, etc.), you may do so without a travel report. We still require ORIGINAL RECEIPTS.
    Upon completion of travel, ORIGINAL RECEIPTS must be turned in with completed travel form to Natalie Rosales in Scott Hall 109 (Natalie_Rosales@pitzer.edu), within 2 weeks of completion of travel.

  • Posters

    The Office of Communications can design posters for any college-sponsored event held on campus. Please provide them with all content in the Graphics Request Form you intend to have on the poster two weeks in advance. Once the content is confirmed by their staff, allow ten business days for the first proof.

    The Office of the Dean of Faculty can assist with posting posters with the assistance of work study students. It is recommended to provide the office with a digital copy as well to promote to students.


  • Proctoring

    The Dean of Faculty’s office is no longer providing exam proctoring and management, including exam distribution, collection, and observation. Staff in the Office of Dean of Faculty will not be available to provide these services. In case of a faculty emergency, you should contact dofcore@pitzer.edu to see if emergency coverage can be arranged. Emergencies fall under unscheduled visits to the doctor, an unexpected hospital visit or urgent care visit, or unanticipated family emergency.

    Exceptions will be made only when standard logistics for a given exam require that multiple computer labs be used simultaneously with the instructor needing coverage in one of these spaces.  Such exceptions require at least two-week advanced notice for our staff.

    For circumstances outside of these conditions reach out to colleagues in your field group for proctoring support. Otherwise our staff shall only be able to support by reserving a space for you to administer the exam or arrange a room for a rescheduled exam session.

    If you have any questions regarding this policy please contact dean_faculty@pitzer.edu or 909.621.8217.

    For information on proctoring students in need of disability accommodations, refer to the forms for Academic Support Services.

    Student Research and Awards

    The Dean of Faculty’s Office oversees research and conference travel funding for students:

    (a) Research Grants: Grants are available to assist Pitzer College students with research project costs. The goal of the grant is to encourage independent research by students. Research necessary for the satisfactory completion of coursework will not be funded, with the exception of Independent Study projects, senior theses (whether required or optional), and other senior projects. The maximum amount any student can receive for research in an academic year is $300.00.

    There are normally two grant periods announced each year, one in the early fall, one in the early spring. Applications can be obtained under the tab titled Forms, and should be turned in to Natalie Rosales in Scott Hall 109 or by email to Natalie_Rosales@pitzer.edu. No reimbursement for expenses incurred can be made until receipts are provided. Applications should be for work during the semester, the academic year, and/or the following summer.
