The Syllabus

Welcome, UT Knoxville faculty! On this page, you can find downloadable templates for your syllabi needs. Please note that the UT Knoxville Course Syllabus 2017/2018 template and the UT Knoxville Campus Syllabus 2017/2018 template are compliant with the Universal Design for Learning and Accessibility guidelines. When creating your syllabus for students, it is very important to pay attention to accessibility guidelines in order to cater to students with varying needs. Syllabi should be posted on your course site in both Word and PDF format.

Syllabus Checklist

The Teaching and Learning Center – Syllabus Checklist is a helpful tool with information to edit your existing syllabus.  Be sure to use the checklist in conjunction with the campus syllabus template below, so that your syllabus is accessible and contains current information.

Additionally, the following one-page document from the Office of Emergency Management was created with the intent to augment the campus syllabus so that faculty have easy access to knowing what protective actions are appropriate for different types of emergencies. You can find that here.
