Motion on spring semester
starting one week later in January
MOTION # XIII-M20
on spring semester starting one week later in January
1. Motion presenter: Barbara White
2. Date of Faculty Senate discussion: 4/6/09 and 4/27/09
The senior vice provost said that many people are researching the answers to the questions posed by faculty about a January term and that it would be helpful to know if the week removed from the spring semester (in senate motion XIII-M19) would be at the beginning or the end of the semester. The senators agreed that the spring semester should end no later than it currently does.
The equal, fourteen week semesters will begin with the 2009/2010 spring semester and start one week later than usual in January.
5. Senate action: passed with twenty-one ayes, six nays and three abstentions.
6. Senate chair’s signature: Marco Dorfsman
