For Faculty

1. Final Exams II - Mary Schutten

Last week I sent a reminder about the policy for final exams.  University policy states that all classes must meet for a culminating experience during final exam week. Since there is a wide variation in the nature of the culminating experiences, please be considerate of nearby classes related to noise and other distractions.

For Unit Heads

2. Unit Head meetings with Dean Antczak 

Dean Antczak will have goal setting meetings with each Unit Head to review your department goals. Tracy McLenithan will be contacting you the week of April 23rd with the available dates.
