Deadlines
Due to the public funding received by the college, state and federal mandates require strict record keeping. It is important to make a note of deadlines when they are announced. All required material must be submitted on time.

Department Chair
Your department chair will be your most important contact at the college. Check with your department chair to make sure that you have filled out all the necessary paperwork with Human Resources when you are offered a course to teach. If you have any academic questions, you should speak with your department chair.

E-mail and Contact Information
All employees of the college are automatically provided with a computer account secured by a user ID and password, which provides access to the campus e-mail system after all paperwork has been processed through Human Resources. You can access this account both on campus and at home via the college's WebMail. The WebMail link is located on the bottom of all Hudson Valley Web pages. E-mail correspondence is an integral part of communication at Hudson Valley Community College. All official college business is communicated via the campus e-mail system. To keep abreast of all important announcements and deadlines for which you will be responsible, please check your e-mail on a daily basis. Most offices won't keep your personal e-mail address on file.

Please note: An important aspect of a syllabus is the instructor's contact information. Please remember to include your name, work address, and campus e-mail. Adjunct instructors do not receive a campus voice mail box. Since part-time instructors don’t receive a campus voicemail box, it's up to you if you include a personal phone number.
