Other items

If you are using some of your free time during spring break to clean out your office, please note the University policy requiring instructors to keep all student materials for at least one semester. This can be found in the catalog as follows:

“Students have the right to have all their examinations and other graded material made available to them with an explanation of the grading criteria. Faculty will retain all such materials not returned to the student for at least one full semester (or through spring plus summer sessions) after the course was given. Faculty are not required to return such material to the student, but must provide reasonable access.”

Also note that any student materials to be discarded need to be shredded, please do not just toss graded student materials into a trash can or into a recycle bin.
