Laptop-in-Class Policy

The Student Assembly passed a resolution in February 2017 that concerned the use of laptops during class:

Resolution 19: Recommending Uniformity in Faculty Laptop Policies

The matter was brought up in the Senate with three conclusions:

  1. The laptop/device policy is a decision for the instructor.
  2. That policy should be announced on the first day of class.
  3. Accommodations must be  made for students with disabilities.
