Classroom Access for Guest Lecturers

September 1, 2016

Questioner: Jose Franco

Posed to: Shari Shuman, Vice President Administration & Finance

Is there a way to revise the procedure for gaining access to classrooms on campus such that a faculty member filling in for another faculty member will be allowed into the room by the campus police?

Vice President Shari Shuman provided a response from the floor:

If a faculty member is not attached to a course, there is a safety and security measure with allowing individuals access to classrooms who are not authorized users. A faculty member wishing to substitute for the faculty member of record for a course would need to have the Chair of the department call the campus police and inform them of the substitution. Shari Shuman will follow-up with the Chief of police to clarify the process.
