PLTL Rules - SUNY Cortland

PLTL Rules

Students Who Choose to Participate in PLTL Agree to:

  • Attend every weekly PLTL session, arriving on time, and staying for the duration of the workshop
  • Arrive prepared, bringing textbooks, notes, pencils and calculators to each workshop
  • Work actively and cooperatively within a group
  • Take part in new activities with an open mind
  • Participate in evaluations of the PLTL program
  • Refrain from using laptops, cellphones, or similar devices, or otherwise behave distractingly in workshops
  • Recognize that the role of the PLTL Leader is to facilitate discussion between workshop participants, not supply solutions to problems.

PLTL workshops meet once a week throughout the semester. Up to two absences are permitted. Upon the third absence, the participant will be asked to leave the PLTL program. These conditions are meant to maintain steady group membership and to promote group dynamics.

A workshop absence is considered to be one of the following:

  1. not attending the session at all
  2. arriving more than 15 minutes late
  3. leaving the workshop more than 15 minutes early
