Getting in Touch

You will find information about contacting your Lab Instructor or Lecture Instructor(s) below.

No matter which one of us you contact, we appreciate well-written, professional emails and may not respond to ones that are not up to snuff. Checkout an example at the bottom that details what makes a good, professional email.

Contacting Your Lab Instructor

If you have assignment questions, grading issues, or need to talk to us about something else, contact your lab instructor via h101lab@iu.edu.

If you have technical questions about an assignment, a better idea is to stop by study sesssions.

Do not use your lab instructor's personal email and do not use Canvas Messaging. Only use the email listed above. You must include 'honors' in the subject line of the email.

Contacting the Course Instructors

If you have big-picture questions, are running into issues that are effecting your performance in the class, or needs to talk to us about something else, contact your course instructor(s) via h101@iu.edu.

Do not use your course instructor's personal email and do not use Canvas Messaging. Only use the email listed above. You must include 'honors' in the subject line of the email.

Writing a Professional Email

There are a few things that make this email top-notch.

  • It is sent from the student's official IU email address. We cannot communicate with or respond to personal emails!
  • The subject is brief and descriptive, and included the lab section number.
  • There is a short greeting. It shows that you know who you are contacting.
  • The body tells us what you need and (if applicable) why you need it. No fluff required.
  • There is a salutation.
