Missing Class, Instances of Personal Distress or Emergency
The Pratt School of Engineering and Trinity College of Arts and Sciences recognize that some students may need to deal with instances of personal distress or emergency that have an impact on academic life as well as campus life. Note that Duke Reach is also a resource for emergencies.
Students: If you encounter a situation which is especially difficult for you, contact your academic dean and inform him or her of the situation. Your academic dean will assist you in planning how to manage your situation.
Instructors: Please refer a student who is struggling with personal issues to his/her academic dean and/or notify the academic dean if a student seems to be distressed and struggling.
