Faculty Information and Resources
In the event of inclement weather, the CHEC will close if Collin College campuses close. Campus closures are reported to DFW TV and radio stations and posted on the Collin College homepage. Faculty and students can also learn of Collin College emergencies or campus closures by enrolling in Cougar Alert, Collin College's automated emergency alert system. To establish an account, go tohttp://www.ccccd.edu/cougaralert.html.
On Collin College recognized holidays, the CHEC will be open (if your home university has a class scheduled at the CHEC), but the Student Services Center will be closed.
DELAY OR CANCELLATION OF A CLASS:
As a service to faculty commuting to the CHEC, the student services staff can relay messages to students if class is to start late or needs to be canceled. Call the student services center at 972-599-3100 and provide information to be relayed to students. You may also direct substitute professors or guest lecturers to the Student Services Center, Room 120, for assistance. Faculty should make every effort to inform their students ahead of time, if possible, when a class will be canceled.
Make all requests for media services (equipment and repairs) to media services: 972.599.3170. Media needs not permanently installed in classrooms such as video equipment, overhead projectors, laptops, or a projection system must be requested 24 hours prior to date needed. For teachers needing Audio Visual equipment for the duration of the semester please let an A&M-Commerce representative at the CHEC know as soon as possible.
Classroom access issues, including unlocking classroom doors, may be reported to the information desk at 972-599-3100. In case of fire or medical emergency, all classrooms are equipped with a phone to call 911. For other security issues, please call the Campus Police at 972-578-5555 or 5555 on any campus phone.
Texas A&M-Commerce has an office in the Student Services Center (Room 123). Counseling and Psychology faculty have priority access to Room 129. Faculty from other departments are welcome to use Room 129 when it is not occupied by a Counseling or Psychology faculty member.
