Consultation with students is an important part of instruction. Full-time faculty members should schedule a minimum of six hours per week during which students can meet with them in their offices. Part-time faculty members should be available to students before and after class and by appointment.
To facilitate these meetings with students and to avoid interruption at other times, each full-time instructor should post on the office door and announce at the first class meeting of each class, office hours for that semester. Having announced office hours, he or she should then make a special effort to be on hand at these times. Secretaries will prepare a summary of office hours for the Information Desk so that agency will know when instructors are available to inquiring students.
