Memo to LSA Faculty and Instructional Staff: January 5, 2007

Dear LSA Faculty and Instructional Staff:

Greetings and welcome back to the Winter 2007 term after what I hope was a pleasant, albeit short holiday break. Once again, this memo serves as a gentle reminder of College policies and relevant information.

The last day for students to drop or add classes without getting permission, as well as to elect a course pass/fail is Wednesday, January 24, 2007. The student deadline for finishing incomplete work from last semester is Wednesday, January 31.

This is an important term for students completing their sophomore year because it is typically when they make major decisions. Don’t be surprised if these students look to you for advice about your department’s majors and minors. It may be helpful to check with your department advisor for major information to pass on to students. The annual Major Fair is also a good opportunity for students to learn about the various LSA majors and minors. The Fair is scheduled on Tuesday, March 27, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, in the Michigan Union Ballroom located on the second floor.

The 2007 Martin Luther King, Jr. Symposium is in full swing; you may want to highlight as appropriate in your classes. See the following website: http://mlksymposium.umich.edu for more information. No regular classes are scheduled on January 15.

In addition, you may want to draw students’ attention to activities related to the current LSA theme semester, “The Theory and Practice of Citizenship,” and the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads program. See: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/citizenship/ and http://aareads.aadl.org/ for more detailed information.

Among the primary responsibilities of the Assistant Dean of Student Academic Affairs is the oversight of the academic judiciary processes in the College. For additional information, please refer to our academic integrity web site at: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/academicintegrity .

As always, we in Student Academic Affairs are available to help clarify issues regarding student concerns or academic policy. Don’t hesitate to call or email us with inquiries.

Best wishes for a successful term.

 

Sincerely,

Esrold A. Nurse
