  • 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 in advance, ideally at the beginning of the semester. 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 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 contact your Faculty Administrative Assistant, Jessica_Hatcher@pitzer.edu or Erica_Mooyman@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 an 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 have “smart” technology available. For audio visual support, please contact Audio Visual Services or call x72638 (909.607.2638).

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

    The Registrar’s office schedules 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.
  • Course Evaluations

    All faculty are required to administer anonymous teaching evaluations in their classes at the end of each semester. Faculty may use any of the four optional forms (see below) or use an evaluation form of their own design. Faculty should not be present when evaluations are being completed and must arrange for a volunteer from each class to return the completed forms in a manila envelope to the Dean of Faculty’s Office (Scott Hall 114). If class takes place after business hours, evaluations may be deposited in the Dean of Faculty mailbox # A104, located in the Scott Hall mailbox room beside Career Services.

    The four optional course evaluation templates can be downloaded here:

    To administer course evaluations electronically, e-mail help@pitzer.edu with the following information:

    • Preferred Course Evaluation Form
    • Instructor Name
    • Course Title and Number
    • Date and time to release online evaluation links to students

    Requesting Copies of Completed Course Evaluations
    To request a copy of your completed course evaluations, please send an e-mail to Carlos_Alvarez@pitzer.edu. In your e-mail, indicate the course title, course number, and the semester and year the course was taught. Evaluations will be e-mailed as a PDF file.

    Requesting to View Course Evaluations of Other Faculty in Your Field Group
    When rehiring a visiting faculty member, only the personnel liaison within the field group may review the colleague’s course evaluations. Exceptions will only be made when written approval is provided by the individual faculty member whose evaluations are requested for review.

    For questions, clarification or to schedule a time for in-person review of evaluations please contact Carlos_Alvarez@pitzer.edu.

  • Exams

    Final Exams and Spring Reading Days
    Final exams take place the week after classes end. In the Fall, the last day of class is a Friday. In the Spring, the last day of class is a Wednesday, and the two days following are designated Reading Days for students, during which no classes are normally held. For more information, see the Academic Calendar.

    Senior Finals
    In the Spring, all graduating seniors must take their finals before the Final Exam period—specifically, no earlier than the last week of classes and no later than noon on the second Reading Day (when senior grades are due).

    Exam Proctoring
    The Dean of Faculty’s office does not provide 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.

    For circumstances which can be predicted such as a doctor or dentist’s appointment, anticipated family matter or conditions outside of these, contact colleagues in your field group for proctoring support. If none of these colleagues are available,contact additional faculty colleagues outside of the field group to request proctoring support. Otherwise our staff shall only be able to reserve a space for you to administer the exam or arrange a room for a rescheduled exam session.

    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 a two-week advanced notice for our staff.

    In case of an emergency, you should contact your Faculty Administrative Assistant, Jessica_Hatcher@pitzer.edu or Erica_Mooyman@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.

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