Board of Regents approves common calendar for all UA campuses
April 4, 2014
KODIAK, Alaska - The University of Alaska Board of Regents approved a common academic calendar for all campuses within the UA System and requested that faculty develop and adopt common general education requirements for math and English.
Both moves are aimed at better serving students. The soonest the common calendar could go into effect would be sometime in the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2015.
The resolution requesting common general education requirements for math and English has a fall 2016 deadline. The resolution charges faculty to develop and adopt the changes, including common course descriptions, numbers and titles, as well as common placement tools and scores. It also asks that the faculty propose an implementation plan for other areas of
general education, also by fall 2016.
