The University of Texas at Arlington has adopted the University email address as an official means of communication with students. All students are assigned an email account and information about activating and using it is available at www.uta.edu/email. Students are
responsible for checking their email regularly. It is also my goal to use as little paper as possible throughout this course. Thus, please make sure to submit all assignments single-spaced and use both front and back of the paper.
Please turn off or set on silent all cell phones and pagers during class. Cell phones may not be used for text messaging during class. Please keep your cell phones off your table and off your hands. You can use a laptop during class ONLY for the purpose of taking class notes; no instant messaging, web browsing, checking email, playing games, or other non-course related activities are allowed. The professor has the right to ask you to turn off your laptop and prohibit use of laptops during class.
CLASS ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION
Students are expected to attend every class and be on time (we only have 20 sessions). Students are also expected to participate in discussions, exercises, and activities. The attendance of the student is essential to the learning and to the overall success of the course. Part of the learning process is conducted during class when we discuss items. The purpose of in-class discussion and exercises is to assist you in further understanding the course material. Do expect to be call in to answer a question during class so make sure you come prepared. Attendance and participation is 10% of your grade.

CURRENT MANAGEMENT ARTICLE (1)
You will be asked to locate and bring to class 1 article about current events in the news that are
related to management and write a 1-page report. This assignment will help you become more aware of how management issues arise on a daily basis. Details will be posted on Blackboard.
There will be 3 exams. Exams will take place during normal class hours and begin at normal class times. Students who arrive after at least one student has turned in their exam and left the classroom will not be permitted to take the exam. Bring #2 pencils and a Scantron 882-E. Exams will consist of multiple-choice and true/false questions about the material covered in the course. You will not be allowed to use any electronic devices or other help (notes, text book, etc.) during the exams. Exam dates are generally not changed. However, the content/coverage of material on the exams may change based on material covered and needs of the class. Generally, there are no make-ups for missed exams; however, the professor reserves the right to approve exceptions based on University policies or other extreme circumstances.
There will be 4 quizzes. The quizzes are designed to help you master the material and help the professor evaluate the progress of the class and assist you before the exams in areas which need improvement. Quizzes will take place during normal class hours and begin at the beginning of the class times. Students arriving after the quizzes have been handed out will not be permitted to take the quiz. Each quiz will have 5-10 questions (short answers, fill-in-the blanks or similar) and you will be allowed up to 20 minutes to complete them.
Extra credit may be available throughout the semester. Details will be posted on Blackboard.

It is the student's responsibility to complete the course or withdraw from the course in accordance with University regulations. Students will not be dropped by the professor for non-attendance. Students are strongly encouraged to verify their grade status before dropping a course after the first withdrawal date. A student who drops a course after the first withdrawal date may receive an "F" in the course if the student is failing at the time the course is dropped. Please refer to the Undergraduate catalog and the Schedule of Classes for specific university policies and dates.
It is the philosophy of The University of Texas at Arlington that academic dishonesty is a completely unacceptable mode of conduct and will not be tolerated in any form. All persons involved in academic dishonesty will be disciplined in accordance with University regulations and procedures. Discipline may include suspension or expulsion from the University. “Academic dishonesty includes,
but is not limited to, cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another person, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts.” (Regents’ Rules and Regulations, Part One, Chapter VI, Section 3, Subsection 3.2., Subdivision 3.22).
STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES
The University of Texas at Arlington supports a variety of student success programs to help you connect with the University and achieve academic success. These programs include learning assistance, developmental education, advising and mentoring, admission and transition, and federally funded programs. Students requiring assistance academically, personally, or socially should contact the Office of Student Success Programs at 817-272-6107 for more information and appropriate referrals.
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
The University of Texas at Arlington is on record as being committed to both the spirit and letter of federal equal opportunity legislation; reference Public Law 92-112 - The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended. With the passage of federal legislation entitled Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), pursuant to section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, there is renewed focus on providing this population with the same opportunities enjoyed by all citizens. As a faculty member, I am required by law to
provide "reasonable accommodations" to students with disabilities, so as not to discriminate on the basis of that disability. Student responsibility primarily rests with informing faculty of their need for accommodation and in providing authorized documentation through designated administrative channels. Information regarding specific diagnostic criteria and policies for obtaining academic accommodations can be found at www.uta.edu/disability. Also, you may visit the Office for Students with Disabilities in room 102 of University Hall or call them at 817-272-3364.
Section 22.07 of the Texas Criminal Law states that a Class A misdemeanor is punishable by (1) a fine not to exceed $4,000, (2) a jail term of not more than one year, or (3) both such a fine and confinement. If anyone is tempted to call in a bomb threat, be aware that UTA has the technology to trace phone calls. Every effort will be made to avoid cancellation of presentation/ tests caused by bomb threats to the Business Building. Unannounced alternate sites will be available for these classes. If a student who has a class with a scheduled test or presentation arrives and the building has been closed due to a bomb threat, the student should immediately check for the alternate class site notice which will be posted on/near the main doors on the south side of the Business building. If the bomb threat is received while class is in session, your professor will ask you to leave the building and reconvene at another location. UTA's Crimestoppers may provide a reward to anyone providing information leading to an arrest. To make an anonymous report, call 817-272-5245.
