Compass System June 2010 Update
Online Syllabus and Curriculum Vitae requirement for undergraduate classes
The Texas Legislature enacted HB 2504 in June 2009. This bill requires the university to provide the following information to the public: 1) a curriculum vitae (CV) for each instructor 2) a syllabus for each class and 3) departmental budget information (which will be provided by FAMIS). This information must be provided for all undergraduate classes within a week of the first class day of the fall 2010 semester.
Individuals such as staff or teaching assistants can be designated on the SWASECT form in Compass to have the ability to upload the information for specific classes.
Training guides are under development, and demonstration sessions are scheduled for Monday, July 26 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., and Monday, August 16 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., both held in the General Services Complex Room 101A. The ability to upload the CV and syllabi will be available in Howdy approximately August 1.
