Independent Studies / Readings and Research
January 23, 2006

At the EPC meeting on January 23, 2006, the following motion was approved by unanimous vote:

It is moved that all students will be required to complete an application that must be reviewed by the supervising professor and signed by the appropriate Department Chair or Dean prior to being enrolled in an Independent Study/ Readings and Research. The form also describes university and Lynch School regulations pertaining to the number of Independent Studies/ Readings and Research permitted in each program. A motion to accept these new procedures and the revised form was made and all were in favor. The changes will go into effect for Summer Session I, 2006. The document will be posted on the www and distributed to faculty, students, and staff by the Office of the Associate Dean.
