Don’t Cancel That Class
Occasions inevitably arise when a faculty member is obliged to miss a class due to personal or professional commitments. Now professors have the opportunity to turn this scenario into a unique learning experience for students by scheduling a Don’t Cancel That Class workshop during the missed class.
The interactive sessions are led by a trained educator and cover topics like leadership, diversity, student wellness, and career development. All requests must be submitted at least one week in advance. Upon receipt of the request (subject to availability), a Student Affairs administrator and/or a trained peer educator will be scheduled to lead your class.
Leadership Development at St. John’s University offers this service to all faculty members. Last year, Student Affairs administrators and Wellness Peer Educators facilitated over 25 Don’t Cancel That Class workshops.
