This website provides guidelines concerning the creation, distribution, and modification of syllabi at the University of Louisville. The guidelines provided here are offered as a model for the creation of syllabi generally.
Several programs and units at the UofL have established unit-specific guidelines or requirements in order to standardize syllabi style and content. We encourage faculty members to consult their unit/department head to ensure they are meeting relevant expectations regarding course syllabi.
Lean more about the following topics:
- Existing Syllabus Policies by School/Unit
- Availability & Distribution of Syllabi
- Content Guidelines
- Sample Statements
- University Closure, Delay, and Internet Accessibility for Online Classes
- SACS Requirements (How to Add a Syllabus to Blackboard)
These syllabus guidelines are based on recommendations and research from a select set of web-based and scholarly resources.
