Code of Conduct

Classroom Information

We have booked classrooms for each class at two different buildings: Carnesale Commons (Palisades, Hermosa, and Venice rooms) and De Neve Plaza.  Rooms have been assigned and posted on the course list .  

Floor Plan Diagrams – Room Set-Up

Same rooms will be used for AM and PM courses, so after your class please arrange the room back to its original format.

If you have additional needs, please let us know '' and we will try to accommodate your requests.  

Equipment and Classroom Outline:

  • Most rooms will have a projector (with HDMI Connection) and screen with the exception of De Neve Birch 3rd floor lounge which will have a 55" television screen.  
  • The classrooms are all small-sized and sound will not be needed  
  • Please bring your own laptop – Please note all projectors have an HDMI connection.  If you have a Mac Computer or a VGA connection you will need to bring your own adapter to connect to the projector.
  • The slide display ration from the project to screen is 16×9
  • You may use blue painters tape and sticky notes on the wall, but please remove them when your class is over
  • All rooms are set up with classroom seating.  Instructors are free to arrange the room as they wish, but please put the room in its original classroom seating at the end of each course each day.  

Instructor Resources



  • If you need supplies there is a bookstore on campus located in Ackerman- B Level and Hill Top Shop near De Neve Housing where you can buy supplies. FSCI does not have a budget for these additional items. We may have access to a few flip charts, post-it notes and pads of paper, please send a note to ‘’ and inquire if available.


Assessment Questionaire

  • We will be using this survey to evaluate each course and the institute as a whole.  Individual classes may, of course, prepare a course survey for their individual classes. For your class only, you may send out an additional assessment questionaire a couple of months after the workshop to better understand the impact of the class.


Advance Contact with Participants

  • If you wish you may contact students prior to the event, but it is best protocol to use the bcc unless you ask individuals if it is okay to include everyone’s email in the ‘to’ area. Each instructor will be given their course participant list in advance of FSCI.
