No More Early Breaks?

Update 11:30: Well what do you know! Both we and the Collegian had this one wrong. No new policy was passed at Tuesday's meeting. Rather, a resolution was passed that was meant to put on record the Senate's "opposition to the early dismissal of classes by teaching staff for anything besides legitimate professional reasons," according to Annemarie Mountz.

A new policy was passed on Tuesday by the University Faculty Senate which is now being moved to President Graham Spanier for approval. What is this new policy? To stop professors from canceling classes before break begins.


College of Liberal Arts Senator Dennis Gouran put it best when he said, "It is unprofessional behavior on the faculty's behalf to cancel classes because they are simply giving themselves and students an early start home."
