  • Syllabus -- Faculty members are required to distribute syllabi to students enrolled in their classes. A copy should also be turned in to the Music Office. A required statement should be included regarding students with disabilities. This is the department's standard statement: "Please address any special needs or special accommodations with me at the beginning of the semester or as soon as you become aware of your needs. Those seeking accommodations based on disabilities should obtain a Student Academic Accommodation Request (SAAR) form from Student Disability Services (SDS) (phone 319-273-2677, for deaf or hard of hearing, use Relay 711). SDS is located on the top floor of the Student Health Center, Room 103." The university recommends the following statement also be included in all syllabi: "Disruptive behaviors in the classroom will not be tolerated. Students may be reported to the Director of the School of Music, Dean of Students or UNI Police for possible disciplinary action(s). Cell phones should be set to the silent mode or vibration mode while in class."

  • Syllabus Addendum for all applied music and ensemble courses Fall, 2013:

    “The UNI School of Music provides basic information regarding the maintenance of health and safety within the context of practice, performance, teaching, and listening.  Students are strongly encouraged to review information provided on the School’s website at :  www.uni.edu/music/students/student_resources.html. Additionally, health and safety information is provided to students during the new student orientation meeting, in ensemble courses, in applied lesson, and in classes when appropriate. Musicians are required to attend at least one applied music seminar meeting each year for all applied areas in the School.  Structured opportunities for applied faculty to share and discuss health and safety information will occur on a regular, recurring basis. The maintenance of hearing, vocal, and musculoskeletal health and injury prevention are paramount.  Individual students continue to be personally responsible for appropriate, prudent, and safe behavior or actions. Please contact the School of Music for offices for questions or concerns.”
