A syllabus should be uploaded into CourseLeaf for all New Course Proposals and Course Edits. If you use Canvas for your course, you may refer students to the Canvas content (see sample language below).

Canvas users may click the Help question mark on the left side of the screen, and then select ‘UMKC Resources and Policy Statements’. As a UMKC student, you are expected to review and abide by these policies. If you have any questions, please contact your instructor for clarification.
