Re:                   2007-2008 Academic Calendar

 

Attached is a copy of the proposed academic calendar for 2006-2007 and 2007-2008.  The calendar for 2006-2007 has already been approved by the Board of Regents.  The 2007-2008 calendar has been produced from the revised "Seven Year Cycle Calendar" that was approved by the Faculty Senate in October, 2001 and approved with summer session revisions on February 12, 2004.  The calendar has been reviewed and approved by the Office of Records and Registration.

 

Please review the calendar with your governance group and let me know the results by February 1, 2006.  Your prompt attention to this matter is appreciated.

 

xc:        Douglas N. Hastad, Chancellor

            Diane Schumacher, Registrar
