Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs Katharine Cole presented the context for the proposed changes to the Proposed Undergraduate Grade Appeal Procedures. The UGC opened the floor for discussion, which included comments from David Mitch, chair of Economics.
After a robust discussion, the UGC made the following recommendations as amendments to the current draft:
1)Clarify the timeline and add language accounting for faculty schedules;
2)Include definitions of what would be considered an “informal” resolution and what constitutes a written statement;
3) Bring this draft directly to department chairs for their input.
