Unit Head and Faculty Weekly Mailing 4-17-12
For Unit Heads
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
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.
Fall 2012 book orders are now overdue and please place all outstanding orders ASAP in order to help keep costs down. Thank you! www.ubs.gvsu.edu/ePOS?this_category=250&store=437&form=shared3%2fgm%2fmain%2ehtml&design=437
