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

3.  Rationale:

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. 

4.  Motion:

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.
