Flexibility for engaged students
Students can miss a course or have a deadline extension in case they have a commitment related to their activities as representatives or clubs’ board members. Absences of students engaged in a volunteering event who have to skip classes could be also justified.
Potential challenges and suggested solutions
There is a risk for engaged students to miss many courses and compromise their studies. Clear rules should be defined in order to make sure that engagement is an added value for students. Constraints/limits should be elaborated, especially for the number of authorized absences.
