I am a committed advocate for higher education and, for that matter, education in general. I am fully aware that learning is most likely to occur when a variety of methods are implored. For that reason, I will utilize group-thinking processes, student-centered learning, encourage and promote active discussions, and regularly assess your knowledge via quizzes and/or classroom writing assignments. Frequent analysis, questioning, commentary, and exploration will be required, as each student is expected to participate in class discussions and activities.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Term papers, presentations, and examinations will not be taken late without the prior approval of the instructor. The student must have an acceptable reason for the late submission. All work that is received past the established deadline is subject to a penalty of 25% of the value of the assignment.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
All Park University rules will be in force for this class. If, after the break, you do not return, then you will be considered as an unexcused absence for the entire class unless you coordinate the departure with the instructor beforehand.

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.

Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing.

These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
