Building & classroom rules

Animal policy

By EMU policy,“Except for service animals, no animals are permitted in university buildings or facilities.”


We want to provide a welcoming environment that does not trigger allergic reactions. Please refrain from wearing any perfume, cologne, scented lotions or scented deodorant while attending classes.

Cell phones & laptops

Cell phones are to be turned off during class time. No text messaging.

Students using laptop computers for note-taking are asked to refrain from surfing the net and/or managing email during class time. When the class is engaged in interactive conversation (e.g. large or small group discussion) laptop computers should be closed so as to remove the relational barrier they create.
