Don’t Cancel That Class!

Avila Faculty Member: Called away on business? Attending a conference? Family obligations?

There’s no need to cancel your class!

We can cover your class and present on various topics relevant to Avila students

This program is designed to help faculty members who may need to be absent during their normal class time. If you are planning to be gone and will be unable to teach, please consider letting us use that time!

Even if you don’t need to cancel a class, you are always welcome to request any of these presentations for your classes throughout the year.

If possible, please give a reasonable amount of notice (48 hours) if you know you will be absent for meetings, conferences, vacations, etc. We cannot guarantee that we will be available for every request, though we will try hard to fill as may request as our schedules allow
