Assessment

The Office of Institutional Research & Academic Assessment (OIRA) partners with Field Groups in the development and implementation of assessment plans that encompass Institutional Learning Objectives and Student Learning Objectives specific to each major. The office collaborates with faculty in the development of direct and indirect assessment methodologies and provides technical support to Field Groups to align the annual assessment of student learning outcomes with comprehensive program reviews. OIRA also provides analytical support to committees and offices throughout Pitzer’s shared governance structure to foment a culture of evidence-informed decision-making.

Class Cancellations

The decision to cancel classes should be taken very seriously. The reputation of the College and the integrity of the academic program rely on every class being conducted according to the schedule. Faculty should discuss their approach to class cancellation with students well in advance, ideally at the beginning of the semester. Normally, faculty members are responsible for notifying students of the decision to cancel a class directly (e.g. via an announcement in a prior class or by e-mail). The following guidance is provided with regard to class cancellations:

Anticipated Absence
If you know that you will not be present for a class because you will be attending a conference or engaged in another professional activity, announce this information to your students well in advance, on the syllabus if possible. Try to arrange for a colleague to teach the class on the day(s) that you will be away or discuss alternative activities or assignments with the students and make it clear how the time will be made up. Although you may try to reschedule the class, you should assume that our students’ complex schedules may make it difficult or impossible to do this.

Emergency Absence
Occasionally a medical or personal emergency arises which necessitates your canceling a class at the last minute. There are many variables involved in this kind of situation: meeting time of the class (day/evening), time remaining before the class meets, class size, etc. It is your responsibility to use good judgment to make the best of this unfortunate situation. If you can notify your students individually by phone or e-mail, this is the best alternative. If your situation prevents you from doing this, you should call the Office of the Dean of Faculty at x18218 (909.621.8218) or email DoFcore@pitzer.edu and ask to have your students notified in class (be prepared to provide the time and meeting location of your class).

Classrooms

Initial Classroom Assignments: Initial classroom assignments are made by the Registrar’s Office based on information submitted on the faculty course form(s). In cases of competing requests, the Registrar’s Office will consult with the Senior Associate Dean of Faculty, who will find alternate arrangements as needed.

Changes After Initial Assignments Have Been Made: Please contact the Registrar’s Office at Registrar@pitzer.edu.

Smart Classrooms: All classrooms are “smart.” For audio visual support, please contact Audio Visual Services at x72638 (909.607.2638).

Classroom Priority Scheduling for West Hall Q116 and Q120, Broad Hall 210 and 214, and Avery 201:

The Offices of the Dean of Faculty and the Registrar schedule classroom space. Due to the technological and pedagogical needs (i.e. high definition projectors and light-blocking window shades) of various fields, for example Intercollegiate Media Studies, Art History, and Media Studies programs, the following priority scheduling for rooms will occur.

  1. For Avery 201, Broad Hall 210, and Broad Hall 214:
    Art History and Classics courses will have priority scheduling for those classrooms, followed by Intercollegiate Media Studies. Once these courses have been scheduled, the room is available for all other disciplines to schedule their courses.
  2. For West Hall Q116 and Q120:
    Intercollegiate Media Studies will have priority scheduling for those classrooms, followed by Art History and Classics. Once these courses have been scheduled, the room is available for all other disciplines to schedule their courses.

Funding guidelines and maxima are outlined below:
