Resources for BUSN Faculty & Adjuncts
The information contained below is intended for use by faculty, adjuncts and staff in the School of Business only. While much of the information is drawn directly from University policies and procedures, some of it is very School-specific and other Schools may do things differently in some cases. That said, we hope you find the information below useful and helpful. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the BUSN office.
If it is necessary to cancel a class, please notify the BUSN office. A cancellation sign will be posted on the classroom door with any additional information you request. Additionally, if needed, an email will be sent to the class. Class cancellations for personal reasons will be counted as sick time. If you are out for more than one class day (e.g., Monday & Wednesday) the intervening day will also be recorded as sick time. If you intend for the class to run as scheduled in your absence, please make every effort to have a program colleague cover the class for you. If you are unable to get coverage from a fellow faculty member, someone from BUSN may be able to assist.
- For all absences, please complete the Faculty/Staff Absence form and submit it to the BUSN office, either as an email attachment or in person. This includes attendance of a conference. Please notify the School of Business Office no later than 1 week prior to your absence. We will need a faculty absence form in place stating if classes will be canceled or if you have alternate plans.
Initial classroom assignments are made by the Office of Student Records and are subject to change for at least the first few weeks after the schedule is made viewable. If you have specific classroom requests or believe there will be an issue with your rooms as assigned, please notify the BUSN office by email (Business.School@Stockton.edu) We will make every effort to ensure that your rooms meet the needs of your classes, but due to space limitations, it may not always be possible to fulfill every request. Please do remember to check your rooms before the start of the semester, so that we can minimize issues once the semester starts. You are more than welcome to make arrangements to switch rooms with other instructors on your own, but please notify the office immediately so that we can maintain the accuracy of the class schedule online and make sure there are no unforeseen issues.
Requests for lab reservations can be made by emailing the BUSN office, or can be sent directly to the office of Information Technology Services by filling out their online request form. Regular or recurring lab reservations are best made prior to the start of the semester. Please note that there is a separate process (internally for I.T.S.) for scheduling labs during the final/extended week, and that regular lab assignments may not carry over. Lab requests for the final week should be made as early as possible in the same manner as a regular lab request, but labs will not be assigned until later in the semester.
Routine copy requests should be submitted in advance. You can email the BUSN office (Business.School@Stockton.edu) for any copy requests, or use the blue work request forms in the office. Copy requests of high volume will be sent to the print shop. Be sure to leave ample time for job completion. You may make copies on your own, but please submit a request for large or more complex jobs (100 pages or more). Also, please be aware of copywrite infringements. Whenever possible, please make copies on the front and back side of the page in order to save paper. Please consult a BUSN administrative assistant if you need assistance with your copy requests. If at all possible, go green.
- All BUSN faculty should be connected to the "BUSN_Canon" located in the workroom. If you do not see this printer listed as an option when printing from your office, please let someone in the office know and we will get you connected. This printer can be used any time as needed; however, please do not use it for exceptionally large documents or to make multiple copies of documents. This puts excessive wear and tear on the machine and leads to service disruptions. Such jobs should be sent to the BUSN email (Business.School@Stockton.edu)
- In instances where the course has a waitlist, if the student is in the first place on the waitlist, please send the School of Business an email (BUSN.School@stockton.edu ) requesting that the student be registered as an additional student. Please do not send emails to individual staff members. This will help avoid emails being missed in case they are absent. The School of Business Inbox is monitored by all staff. Please also keep in mind classrooms do have set fire code capacities. We cannot, by law, go over the room capacity.
- We highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the following campus resources and include their contact information in yoursyllabi.
- Faculty should acknowledge that students who observe religious holidays are absent from class for valid reasons. Students have an obligation to notify the faculty member within the first three weeks of the semester if any class session will be missed due to religious observance, and to make up their work and attend alternative class hours, if such are available. Please announce this message in your classes.
