Education Policy Committee

Procedures on Classroom Contact Hours

The following motion was recommended to the dean on May 19, 1999 by the full EPC, and formally approved by the dean on May 28, 1999. Please keep this notice with your records about Lynch School of Education policies, programs, and procedures.

This policy will be implemented beginning in the 2000-2001 school year, to the extent that space, classroom schedules, and the course requirements of current students permit.

The EPC requests that the Office of the Dean work with the University to facilitate as rapid a shift as feasible to 2.5 hour classes. The EPC also requests that the Office of the Dean facilitate the shift of classes into daytime slots for those cases in which programs and faculty consider daytime classes appropriate. The EPC also requests that the Dean solicit faculty input during the implementation of this policy and accommodate faculty concerns when practical during the period of transition.
