Rogers State University: Create a fair, uniform absence policy for all students

    1. Petition by

      Rogers State University Student Government Association

Currently, some RSU students may have to chose between participating in events that are required for a scholarship or attend classes. There is no formal policy that truly represents the interests of these students. This puts an undue burden on students who, through no fault of their own, must suffer because of current RSU policy.

I support an established policy that would guarantee students an excused absence for events that are sponsored by academic departments. I also support the requirement that students given this guarantee should be given equal work to ensure fairness in the classroom.

To:
Rogers State University Faculty Senate
Larry Rice, President, Rogers State University
Create a fair, uniform absence policy for all students

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I am a non-traditional student and a father of three kids. My wife is also a student. When my kids get sick and need to be taken care of, we have to make tough decisions about who gets to miss class. This all depends on the professors whims whether we are penalized or not for being a good parent, which is evidently required of us by state law. I know of members of the National Guard who occasionally need to miss class due to being called to duty for short periods of time and are not given any consideration for service our country. We need standards in place!

      I'm not an RSU athlete but I support the athletes and intend to be a college athlete in the near future and signing this may be an example towards other colleges that are dealing with the same ordeal
