The Executive Committee has approved a standardized schedule for the 2014-2015 academic year, shortening fall term and lengthening spring term so that all three terms will be nine weeks and two days in duration.
Classes will begin on Sept. 15 and the final day of exams of Spring Term will be on June 2. Commencement will fall on June 6.
Spring break will remain nine days and extend from March 16-24. Winter break will also remain unchanged.
New student orientation does not yet have a fixed date yet, as Dean of Students Debbie Southern is looking into the possibility of changing it.
In 2011 the Executive Committee approved a similar calendar, also with a standardized length of nine weeks and two days. That calendar was subsequently approved at the October faculty meeting of that year.
The calendar must still be approved by the Board of Trustees at their upcoming meeting.
