The SPS admissions and advising staff highly encourages all SPS faculty to complete Attendance Verification and to utilize the Early Warning System, as described below. Failure to do so can lead to serious administrative issues as well as significant problems for SPS students.
Class rosters are available on Banner for each class. To access your class list, access Banner through the mySLU web portal and click on the Tools tab. Students must be registered for the classes they are attending. At the first class meeting, it is very important that the instructor check the list for accuracy--students NOT on the roster should be instructed to see the site coordinator immediately in order to be officially enrolled in the class. Students on the roster but not attending should also be reported so that an advisor can determine their status.
It is the instructor's responsibility to assure that only students listed on the roster be permitted to attend class and any discrepancies be reported to the site coordinator/academic advisor or by completing the online Attendance Verification Form.
Academic Referral "Early Warning System"
Students not on the official class list, not attending, performing poorly or involved in other classroom incidences should be reported on the "Early Warning" site in Banner. On each of your class rosters in Banner, a link is provided adjacent to students' names to connect you to the "Early Warning" form. Once completed, this form will be sent directly to the student's advisor, who will intervene by contacting the student to offer assistance in determining the best course of action.
SPS faculty have access to several resources to assist them in terms of administration, promotion and governance. These include:
- SPS Rank and Tenure Guidelines
- Saint Louis University Faculty Senate
- The SPS Faculty Handbook
- SLU ID and Parking Information
- Department of Public Safety
The current SPS representative to the faculty Senate is Dr. Steve Winton, and he can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about these committees, please contact the appropriate chairperson.
