- Executive Committee acted on Senate's behalf in changing 2010
Commencement date: The Senate Executive Committee, at its meeting on
September 4, 2009, acted on behalf of the Senate in changing the
university commencement date for 2010 from Tuesday, May 18 to Sunday,
May 16 at 1:00 p.m. to accommodate the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. The
action was taken in partial response to a request from Secretary
of the University Leslie Fehrenbach that the University Senate change
the University Commencement dates on the academic calendar for 2010
and beyond. [Click these links to view Ms.
Fehrenbach's July 27, 2009 letter and its attachment.]
Senate bylaws allow the Executive Committee to act on the Senate's
behalf in urgent matters. The Senate's Academic Standards, Regulations
and Admissions Committee has been charged with considering the
remainder of the request to change commencement dates, which is based
on other scheduling and logistical considerations outlined in Ms.

Code of Student Conduct, and Vice President for Student Affairs
Dr. Blimling briefed the Senate Executive Committee on this issue at
