The Don't Cancel Class Program

The LiveWell Office will offer “Don’t Cancel Class” this semester. We continue to work with campus partners to provide educational presentations on a variety of topics should you need to cancel a class. If you know that you will be missing a class, you or your administrative specialists are asked to call or email using the contact information listed beside your chosen session. In Spring 2023, several participating departments will be offering presentations in the online environment, as noted below.

We will be happy to take attendance during the class. It is preferred that you call in advance to schedule a presentation, though we will make every effort to cover all requests. Thank you for your support of this program which aims to help all of our students take advantage of every possible educational moment to engage in their holistic development.
