COAS Canvas Operational Practices Forum

Operational practices (OPs) are descriptions of how things are usually done. COAS OPs are subordinate to the COAS Operating Procedures/Bylaws, UNF polices (including the Collective Bargaining Agreement), SUS policies, state law, and federal law. Exceptions to OPs must be authorized by the Dean and the Dean may authorize exceptions from time to time.

The College uses Canvas as a means for faculty and staff to provide feedback on draft OPs. Participation is completely voluntary. A Canvas “course” has been created. If you wish to participate in discussions of draft OPs, just enroll in this course using the link below.
