Introduction of Andrea Brown (Donna Dillingham-Evans)

(Ratification of March 9, 2012 – Email Vote)
Donna’s analysis of the time needed to stay within established guidelines for offering credit courses is attached.   Given the constraints, David Roos made the  motion to add a Reading Day to Spring semester beginning with Spring 2013, but to leave Fall semester as it is — that is, to not shorten the instructional days or adjust the fall break.
