Syllabus Guidelines and Information
East Carolina UniversityWhether you're a seasoned faculty member with many syllabi in your files or a beginning faculty member preparing your first syllabus, please check out the information provided here about the syllabus at ECU.
ECU faculty members submit copies of their syllabi to their departmental offices and distribute copies in paper or electronic form to all students at the beginning of the term. The PowerPoint presentation and "Course Syllabus Example including DE suggestions" accessible below provide information that should be useful to you.
Every ECU course has a corresponding Blackboard site as part of the ECU Continuity of Instruction Plan. A link to that information is provided in the PowerPoint presentation, as well as information about University policies concerning grading, attendance, disability support, weather and emergency statements, academic integrity, and more. Information about book requisitions is in the Business Services portion of this site. You can find the academic calendar at http://www.ecu.edu/fsonline/senate/fscalend.cfm. The calendar also includes the exam schedule. Although some units use common grading scales, most leave grading scales and attendance policies to the individual faculty member. To learn more about academic policies and eligibility standards for undergraduate students, visit the Faculty Manual at http://www.ecu.edu/cs-acad/fsonline/customcf/currentfacultymanual/manual.pdf and the undergraduate catalog section on Academic Regulations at http://catalog.ecu.edu/content.php?catoid=7&navoid=442.
