Classroom Alternatives

Student Life acknowledges and supports your great work with our students in the classroom and laboratories across our campus. The work you do is truly amazing.

We would like to let you know about a program we offer called Classroom Alternatives. If you must miss a class due to professional obligations, conference or workshop attendance, illness, etc., we would love to work with your students.

Classroom Alternatives offers a menu of programs that can be delivered to your class in your absence at no cost to you or your department. The topics range from alcohol and drug education to service/volunteerism to wellness to study and library research skills, and many in between. Once a session is scheduled, the facilitator will go to your classroom, introduce themselves and their topic, conduct the program, distribute information sheets or handouts, take attendance, and ask students to complete a brief evaluation. Within a week of the class, the facilitator will provide you with information about their presentation, including copies of handouts.

Our goals through this program are to reach out and make contact with students in as many ways as possible and also to serve as a resource to faculty. We hope you will find this program to be a useful resource from which your students will benefit.
