Faculty Resources

Find useful information for MIP faculty below.


These resources will used to create, modify, and schedule courses for the 2020-21 Academic Year.  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 for AY 2020-2021, 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, 2020 for Fall Quarter; December 6, 2020, for Winter Quarter; February 28, 2021, 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 Meghan Moura (650.725.9075) in the program office.
