UNH Faculty Senate

Motion on Procedure on Study Abroad Fees


Review of Study Abroad Fees


1.  Motion presenter:   Marco Dorfsman

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  10/8/07

3.  Motion:

The Faculty Senate moves to request that the University Committee on Study Abroad and the program directors of all the UNH-managed Study Abroad Programs be asked to undertake a systematic review of the fee structure changes in Study Abroad Programs, in collaboration with the appropriate administrators at both the college and university level, and to come up with recommendations regarding the impact and advisability of such changes.

 4.  Rationale:

This review is separate from the investigation by the Academic Affairs Committee of a possible violation of shared governance regarding the fee structure changes in Study Away Programs at UNH.  While that investigation will concern itself with the manner by which the fee structure changes were implemented, that review will not primarily address the specifics and the full reasoning behind the changes.  The senate believes that the faculty constituencies most involved in the academic aspects of study abroad should analyze the issues, in order to generate the best possible information on the matter. 

5.  Senate action:   passed, with thirty-one ayes, two nays, and two abstentions

Senate chair’s signature:  William Stine
