Statement on Classroom Civility
In the fall semester of 2014, the CLA Diversity Action Committee created a Statement on Classroom Civility for inclusion on syllabi for all classes taught in the college. Dean Weiser distributed the statement in an email to all instructional staff in the spring of 2014 and again in the fall of 2014
