Welcome to Mansfield University faculty. As you prepare your classes, you will be constructing a syllabus for each course. The syllabus is your contract with the students. As such, it needs to have several basic components. If you prefer, you may reformat it and insert additional headings as long as the categories listed in the sample syllabus are included. A copy of the syllabus for each course must be submitted to the office of the appropriate Dean.
