Academic Calendar: Students are encouraged to review important add, drop or withdraw dates:
Academic Honesty: The Board of Curators of the University of Missouri recognizes that academic honesty is
essential for the intellectual life of the University. Faculty members have a special obligation to expect high
standards of academic honesty in all student work. Students have a special obligation to adhere to such
standards. Academic dishonesty, including cheating, plagiarism or sabotage, is adjudicated through the
University of Missouri Student Conduct Code and Rules of Procedures in Student Conduct Matters.
(Academic units may have additional student codes of behavior to be referenced, i.e. Honor Codes.)
 Completion of Students’ Own Work: All students are required to complete their own work on both
written assignments and presentations. Students may obtain feedback on their written assignments
and presentations only from the Writing Studio, instructor-led in-class peer feedback activities, or their
course instructor! Any other outside help will be likely a form of plagiarism.
ï‚· Plagiarism includes but is not limited to paraphrasing or quoting without full citation, unacknowledged
use of materials (for example, an essay from the internet) or unacknowledged joint production of
materials (for example, more than one person writes an essay or prepares a presentation but only one
name is listed).
ï‚· Plagiarism and Online Translation Programs and/or Human Translators: To write an
assignment in a student’s first language and subsequently use an online translation program,
translation software on an electronic device, or a human translator to translate your assignment to
English constitutes plagiarism and is therefore not allowed. The translation is not comprised of the
student’s own words, but those of others. This includes both written assignments as well as
Academic Inquiry, Course Discussion and Privacy:
No Audio and/or Visual Recording, and/or photography is allowed in class. University of
Missouri System Executive Order No. 38 lays out principles regarding the sanctity of classroom
discussions at the university. The policy is described fully in Section 200.015 of the Collected Rules and
Regulations. In this class, students may not make any audio or video recordings of course activity
(including those recordings prepared by an instructor), except students permitted to record as an
accommodation under Section 240.040 of the Collected Rules. All other students who record and/or
distribute audio or video recordings of class activity are subject to discipline in accordance with
provisions of Section 200.020 of the Collected Rules and Regulations of the University of Missouri
pertaining to student conduct matters.
Those students who have written permission from the course instructor to record are not permitted to
redistribute any audio or video recordings of statements or comments from the course to individuals
who are not students in the course without the express permission of the faculty member and of any
students who are recorded, including those recordings prepared by an instructor. Students found to
have violated this policy are subject to discipline in accordance with provisions of Section 200.020 of
the Collected Rules and Regulations of the University of Missouri pertaining to student conduct matters.
Attendance Policy: Class attendance and active participation is mandatory. Students are expected to attend
and participate in classes. Advance notice of attendance policies of academic units and individual instructors
should be given, and such notice should be in writing. Students should notify instructors of excused absences
in advance, where possible. Students who have an excused absence are expected to make arrangements with
instructors for alternative or make-up work. Such arrangements should be made in advance of the absence,
where possible. Instructors should accommodate excused absences to the extent that an accommodation can
be made that does not unreasonably interfere with the learning objectives of the course or unduly burden the
instructor. Attendance policies shall be applied in a non-discriminatory manner.
Campus Safety: Inclement weather, mass notification, and emergency response guide:
Counseling and Health Services Available at UMKC: UMKC students may experience many challenges in
their lives while attending college – stress, depression, suicidality, trauma, relationship issues, health concerns,
etc. As your professor I care about your success and well-being, and want to make you aware of some helpful
resources on campus. The UMKC Counseling Center (www.umkc.edu/counselingcenter), located at 4825
Troost in Room 206, offers a wide range of supportive services to students. Appointments can be made by
calling 816.235.1635. UMKC Student Health and Wellness (http://info.umkc.edu/studenthealth/), located at
4825 Troost in Room 115, offers a full range of health care and promotion services. Appointments can be

Ability/Disability Support Services: To obtain disability related accommodations and/or auxiliary aids,
students with disabilities must contact the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD) as soon as
possible. To contact OSSD, call (816) 235-5696. Once verified, OSSD will notify the course instructor and
outline the accommodation and/or auxiliary aids to be provided. For more information go to:
English Proficiency Statement: Students who encounter difficulty in their courses because of the English
proficiency of their instructors should speak directly with their instructors. If additional assistance is needed,
students may contact the UMKC Help Line at 816-235-2222 for assistance.
Grade Appeal Policy: Students are responsible for meeting the standards of academic performance
established for each course in which they are enrolled. The establishment of the criteria for grades and the
evaluation of student academic performance are the responsibilities of the instructor.
The University grade appeal procedure is available only for the review of allegedly capricious grading and not
for review of the instructor’s evaluation of the student’s academic performance. Capricious grading, as that
term is used here, comprises any of the following:
• The assignment of a grade to a particular student on some basis other than the performance in the course;
• The assignment of a grade to a particular student according to more exacting or demanding standards than
were applied to other students in the course; (Note: Additional or different grading criteria may be applied to
graduate students enrolled for graduate credit in 300- and 400-level courses.)
• The assignment of a grade by a substantial departure from the instructor’s previously announced standards.
Discrimination Grievance Procedures for Students: Discrimination Grievance Procedures for Students
can be found here: http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/rules/collected_rules/grievance/ch390/grievance_390.010
Statement of Human Rights: The Board of Curators and UMKC are committed to the policy of equal
opportunity, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability and
status as a Vietnam era veteran. Commitment to the policy is mentored by the Division of Diversity, Access &
Equity, but it is the responsibility of the entire university community to provide equal opportunity through
relevant practices, initiatives and programs.
Title IX: Under the University of Missouri’s Title IX policy, discrimination, violence and harassment based on
sex, gender, and gender identity are subject to the same kinds of accountability and support applied to
offenses based on other protected characteristics such as race, color, ethnic or national origin, sexual
orientation, religion, age, ancestry, disability, military status, and veteran status. If you or someone you know
has been harassed or assaulted, you can find the appropriate resources by visiting UMKC’s Title IX Office
webpage (http://info.umkc.edu/title9/) or contacting UMKC’s Title IX Coordinator, Mikah K. Thompson
(816.235.6910 or [email protected]). Additionally, you can file a complaint using UMKC’s online
discrimination complaint form, which is located at http://info.umkc.edu/title9/reporting/report-online/.

Preparation for Class and Active In-Class Participation:
1. Through preparation of all homework assignments, whether a reading or a writing assignment.
2. As is customary with any university course, it is a requirement for students to bring their copy
of the syllabus to each class period. As well, it is each student’s responsibility to have the
textbooks and handouts (articles) in class when being used; this requirement is reflected in your
attendance and participation grade.
3. Successful completion of in-class reading, writing, listening, note-taking and / or speaking activities,
quizzes and exams (some announced and some not).
4. Active class participation: This means coming to class ready to contribute ideas and enthusiasm. It
also means being prepared with assignments so that students can talk and / or write about ideas.
Please remember that students earn points for active participation.
5. Faithful attendance for each class period: Attendance is mandatory, because discussion is an
important part of this course; your presence is critical, most especially since this is a discourse
class. If you have a highly unusual circumstance one day and are unable to attend class you must
either contact me or a classmate to obtain the assignment for the next day. Be sure to follow along
on with the syllabus as you are still responsible for homework, readings and so forth. Any due date
that is missed for a paper or other assignment which is not submitted because of an unexcused
absence will be treated according policy of submitting assignments on time as stated in this
syllabus. Documentation will be required for an absence to be excused, e.g. a doctor’s note or an
accident report. An in-class assignment that is missed due to an unexcused absence cannot be
made up. Keep in mind that you earn attendance and participation points toward your grade. You
have to be in class to earn these points. Each student is required to attend all classes!
