  1. The meeting began at 4:30 pm.
  2. Class Attendance and Excused Absences Policy


Ed Omiecinski (Chair of the Student Academic and Financial Affairs Committee) presented proposed changes to the Regulations regarding excused absences.  The SRC discussed the proposed changes and suggested some modifications to the proposed wording.  No formal action was taken due to lack of a quorum.

  1. Learning Support Policy

    Assistant Vice Provost Carole Moore presented a proposed statement of the Learning Support Policies, which pertain to the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Learning Support Program.   Since the Learning Support Program is not part of the Regulations, AVP Moore was not seeking formal approval by the SRC, but constructive feedback and agreement in concept.   With minor wording changes for clarity sake, the SRC members present were in agreement with the policy statement.


Addendum:  The minutes of the SRC meeting 2/26/2008 were approved by e_mail vote on 4/16/2008.
