Text of President McCormick's June 4, 2012 response to the Senate's Report and Recommendations on Charge S-1003 on the Academic Calendar, Part 2:

Dear Mr. Swalagin:

I am writing in response to the Report and Recommendations on Charge S-1003 on the Academic Calendar Part 2, as adopted by the University Senate on April 27, 2012.

My administration is pleased to accept the Senate's recommendations to retain the existing calendars for fall academic calendars for 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018 and 2019 and to revise the fall academic calendars for 2016 and 2022 in accordance with the Senate's recommendations. By copy of this letter, I am notifying Chris Morrett, Director of Space Management and Scheduling, and Don Smith, Vice President for Information Technology, of the need to implement these changes. With respect to seeking university input on academic calendar changes for 2015, 2020, and 2021, I suggest that the Committee contact the new administration in the fall regarding placing this item on the agendas of the appropriate administrative bodies.

I thank the members of the Academic Standards, Regulations and Admissions Committee for their continued attention to this issue, and for their ongoing consideration of changes to future academic year calendars.

Sincerely yours,

Richard L. McCormick
