Student Expectations of Instructors

Students expect you to be prepared, to be knowledgeable and enthusiastic, reasonably well-organized, willing to lead a discussion, answer questions, and pose interesting questions. For the CSU Dominguez Hills “Student Rights and Responsibilities”, you can find the Student Conduct policies and procedures through the Student Conduct link at

Students also expect you to meet your scheduled appointments; it is frustrating to students when an instructor is not at an appointment and the department staff does not know where that person is. Please call the department from your cell phone from traffic; and, let them know what is happening so someone is able to assist with any inquiries. To facilitate this, we recommend adding the department phone number to your cell phone contact list.
