The College's grade submission policy allows the provost to change the date that final semester grades are due in any given semester in order to accommodate various calendar issues that might arise. Based on significant input from faculty, the school deans' offices, and the Office of the Registrar, the Provost's Office has decided to change the date that final semester grades are due in the fall 2014 semester.

For the fall of 2014 only, final semester grades will be due on Tuesday, December 30 at noon. This will serve as an opportunity to gather data on the implications of such a move that can then inform a discussion in spring 2015 about whether or not an ongoing policy change for the final semester grade submission deadline is in order.

Thank you.

Brian D. Scholten
Registrar

Faculty Council will recommend a total of 3 faculty members elected by the general faculty to serve, with President Rochon selecting the other 3 in consultation with the Faculty Council Executive Committee, for a total of 6 faculty members on the 11 person committee. It is hoped that this process will balance the committee with a variety of perspectives.

Faculty members play an important role in the lives of students that extends beyond the teaching of course material. The staff of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) recognizes faculty’s potential to influence student’s attitudes about mental health care. We know the stigma about accessing mental health services cause some students to suffer needlessly. Therefore, we invite you to partner with us to identify students at risk, reach out to them, or to report your concerns via the Students at Risk Initiative.
