Faculty Resources

Find useful information for MIP faculty below.

Courses and Instruction

These resources will used to create, modify, and schedule courses.  Please note that all course information must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the relevant deadlines posted below.  The MIP Instructor Handbook, which will be updated in late summer for AY 2022-2023, contains details on things like course policies, the syllabus, exams, and student privacy and support resources.  
Course units are particularly important since they cannot be changed once a given quarter opens for enrollment (September 1, 2022 for Autumn Quarter; December 1, 2022 for Winter Quarter; March 1, 2023 for Spring Quarter).
If you need the password to access the MIP Instructor Handbook and/or have questions, please contact Jonathan Achter (650.725.9155) or Cheng Huynh in the program office.
