Professor of Record

What role does the Professor of Record (POR) play at the iSchool?

The course curriculum, such as content topics and learning objectives, are determined by the POR. You must abide by their decisions in these areas.

The POR can help explain the goals of the course and describe the ideal flow of course content. They can also tell you if they have readings picked out or the limit to your academic freedom within their chosen topics.

Do you know who your POR is?

To find out who your POR is, go to, click Academics tab, then Class Schedule in the menu, then search with the 3 digit course code (IST ###). The course page will list the Faculty of Record/Professor of Record, and a link to the syllabus.
