Student Group Contract

Working with classmates can be both challenging and rewarding. To help your small group succeed, please complete both sides of this contract at your first meeting. A significant aspect to the learning experience of working collaboratively is to resolve differences among yourselves. Remember: It’s your responsibility to communicate directly with the instructor if your group continues to struggle for any reason.

As with any group, a few common courtesies are required. These include but are not limited to: 1) being on time for meetings; 2) completing your share of the work by the agreed-upon deadlines; and 3) staying in touch regularly with your group and the instructor. A copy of this completed contract should be uploaded as a file attachment when the group assignment is due. The contract components should be the same for each group member
