Attendance and active participation are essential for success in this course. Public speaking is a community-oriented, audience-facing activity. Our in-class work together is essential to your success as a communicator and cannot be replaced. As noted in the Grading Policy, in-class activities make up a substantial portion of your grade.

Exception: When representing the University of San Francisco in intercollegiate competition (e.g., athletics, debate), students shall be excused from classes on the hours or days such competition takes them away from classes. However, such students shall be responsible for advising their professors regarding anticipated absences and for arranging to complete course work for classes, laboratories, and/or examinations missed.
