Faculty Week 2: Oct 21-25

Posted on October 17, 2013

Buidling on the success of our inaugural Faculty Week (FW) and in response to popular demand, the Academic Senate is pleased to sponsor FW 2, which will be a series of non-stop pizza parties during the week of October 21-25.


The main topic for discussion is the  UG Curriculum Guidelines proposed by the Provost.  The Guidelines propose changes affecting all undergraduate programs in the School of Art and Design and include revisions to curricula, credit-hour structure and class scheduling.

Comment Website

We will also present comments from the Senate-sponsored Comment website, which was designed to enable constituents (the majority of whom are part-time faculty) to review and comment on the document UG Curriculum Guidelines. The Comment website provides a platform for community discussion of this document. This online review process increases transparency, minimizes duplication of effort on the part of readers, and allows for interaction among readers.

Click here to comment and to read comments. Your comments will post in real time. No identifying information will be displayed, only your comments. The Comment website closes on Thursday, October 31.
