(MUPIM 5.9/OAC 3339-5-09)
One of the primary obligations of each member of the instructional staff is to meet all class engagements for which he or she is scheduled. Class absences by instructors are normally justified on professional, medical, or bona fide emergency grounds.
An instructor who expects to be absent from any classes should obtain prior authorization of the chair or of the Dean of the Regional Campuses. Emergency absences should be reported to the chair or the Dean of the Regional Campuses immediately.
Members of the instructional staff shall conduct the entire meeting of each class before and after each vacation period unless excused by the chair or Dean of the Regional Campuses.
