Academic Calendar Implementation 2013

The Academic Calendar Implementation 2013 project was launched in order to monitor and oversee the development of proposed changes to the Academic Calendar.

With the full endorsement from the Council of Academic Deans, on December 5, 2011, the University Senate voiced support for the following four recommendations:

  • Add a short winter session to the University academic calendar
  • Restructure the fall and spring academic term calendar
  • Revise the time block grid to accommodate changes in the fall/spring academic calendar
  • Accelerate the start of the summer term to begin immediately following the conclusion of the spring term

The Academic Calendar Implementation Committee is meeting and engaging the broad campus community to develop an implementation plan. The goal is to have all necessary planning in place to start the new academic calendar in Fall 2013, including the addition of a winter session for January 2014.
