Academic Integrity Forum
FROM THE SENATE COMMITTEE ON INSTRUCTION:
An open forum on proposed changes in the SU Academic Integrity Policy will be held at 4 p.m. on April 13 in Maxwell Auditorium.
Proposed changes are set forth here. The open forum will take up the following proposed changes:

[c] Replacing appellate hearing panels with review of suspension/expulsion recommendations by the Associate Provost for Academic Programs.
Those who are unable to attend are invited to submit written comments in person or by e-mail addressed to Larry Lewandowski (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Instruction Committee Chair. Please submit your written comments by April 15.
