CCPS Standard Syllabus Templates

This document is designed to provide adjunct faculty with a template for a syllabus with the boilerplate information desired by the College of Continuing Professional Studies. This is the minimum that should go into a syllabus and the faculty member may add additional material, as deemed appropriate. The information items printed in italics are to distinguish between actual boilerplate information and general comments. A clearly defined expectation is a cornerstone of the adult learning model. Often, the difference between a good faculty member and an outstanding faculty member is an outstanding syllabus.
