Learning Differences
Mercyhurst University is committed to making reasonable accommodations to assist individuals with disabilities in reaching their academic potential. Students with disabilities requiring accommodations should complete and submit this form and the required documentation to the Director of Equal Opportunity Programs (DEOP), 311 Egan, aagnew@mercyhurst.edu.
Accommodations will not be granted prior to approval by the DEOP and will not be provided retroactively. Further information is available by visiting the Learning Differences website.

Academic Honesty
Students are required to uphold academic integrity throughout the course. In particular, plagiarism of any sort, unauthorized collaboration on exams, quizzes and other assignments, and other incidences of academic dishonesty will be handled according to the policies set forth in the Student Handbook.

Student Ratings of Instruction
Near the end of the semester, you will be asked to complete an online course evaluation. The evaluation will be completed in class during the last two weeks of the semester using any laptop, tablet, or mobile device. The response tool allows you to note aspects of the course that helped you learn, as well as aspects that might be modified to help future students learn more effectively. You will receive an email letting you know when the evaluation window for our class is open. Please note that these course evaluations are anonymous and instructors do not see the results until after the grades for the course are submitted.

Sexual Misconduct / Sexual Harassment Reporting
Mercyhurst is committed to providing an environment free from sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence. The Counseling Center (814-824-3650) and the Student Health Center (814-824-2431) are both confidential resources where you can talk about incidents of sexual harassment and gender-based crimes including sexual assault, stalking, and domestic/relationship violence. These confidential resources can help you without having to report your situation (unless you request that they make a report).
Please be aware that in compliance with Title IX and under Mercyhurst Policies and Procedures, educators must report incidents of sexual harassment and gender-based crimes including sexual assault, stalking, and domestic/relationship violence. If you disclose any of these situations in class, in papers, or to me personally, I am required to report it to the Title IX Coordinator (or any of the Deputy Title IX Coordinators). The Title IX Coordinator for Mercyhurst is Alice Agnew, 311 Egan, 814-824-2362.
