Hannah Arbogast started this petition to Dr. Vivian Ezeh

We, the concerned Clemson University chemistry 1020/1021 students, petition the general chemistry lab coordinator, Dr. Vivian Ezeh, to make the following changes in order to keep with the asynchronous description of the lab course as it was presented to students during semester planning and course registration:

1)      In keeping with the syllabus which states, “there are no points for attending or missing lab meetings,” students will not be graded on their attendance to synchronous zoom meetings and will not be required to provide a reason or proof of inability to attend synchronous sessions.

2)      In order to facilitate learning for students unable to attend synchronous zoom meetings, the meetings will be recorded and as soon as reasonably possible made available on canvas following the completion of each lab meeting.

3)    The powerpoint slide presentations for each lab will be made available on canvas by at least 11:59 pm the day prior to the respective lab being conducted. 

4)      All lab groups will be provided the option of pre-recording the group presentation assignments. No group will be required, but may choose, to present during synchronous meetings and students will not be required to provide a reason or proof of inability to attend synchronous meetings for presentation purposes.

It is our hope that the above changes requested will enable a learning environment that is inclusive of all students who registered for the chemistry lab course with the understanding the course would be asynchronous and have planned work and other obligations accordingly. Our desire is to learn and support each other while promoting Clemson University's core values of integrity, honesty, and respect. Thank you.

Together,

The Clemson University students of summer semester chemistry 1020/1021
