Annual Report of the Student Academic and Financial Affairs
The committee met six times during the year (11/07/02, 11/26/02, 02/25/03, 03/20/03,
04/01/03, and 04/10/03). There were a number of informal
communications between committee members between the meetings. Most of the
meetings were devoted to work on the report on grade
inflation, which was assigned to the Committee by the Executive Board. That
report, which was done with generous assistance of
Sandy Bramblett and IRP, was presented to the
Executive Board at its 03/11/03
meeting and to the Academic Senate at its 04/22/03 meeting. The reminder of meeting time was
dedicated to annual reviews of various functions, such as advising, admissions,
and financial aid.
In addition, the committee monitored excused absences for
student activities, which are circulated among members
by the Registrar.
The Committee Chair is Miroslav Begovic until 09/16/03.
New Chair is to be elected at the 09/16/03 meeting. M. Begovic
corresponded with Provost McMath regarding the
assignment of the liaison with the newly formed ad hoc Committee on
undergraduate experience: Kim Kurtis will serve as
the first liaison.
