Academic Action Pilot Project Extention Request

The Council of Academic Advisors (CAA) and the Office of the Assistant VC for Undergraduate Education put forward an Academic Action Proposal for CAPP’s consideration. The plan called for a one semester trial period at the end of Fall 2009 to not implement Academic Actions such as probation, suspension and dismissal. In the past such actions were implemented each semester. The impact of such actions would be monitored by the Council and the Office of the AVC for Undergraduate Education at the end of Spring 2010.

CAPP made a motion to approve the Academic Action Proposal and forwarded it to SEC with the proviso that it was a pilot project for Fall 2009 and that the proposing offices would report the impact of such an action to SEC. The full Senate approved the motion.

On October 2010, CAPP made a unanimous motion to request that SEC follow-up with the concerned offices and asked for a report on the impact of the Academic Action Pilot Project.

On October 18, CAA responded to CAPP’s request for the impact report indicating that the group needed additional time. The report would be forthcoming from the CAA through the Assistant VC for Undergraduate Education Ron Cambra at the end of May 2011. CAPP discussed the request for an extension and unanimously agreed to extend the final report deadline to May 2011 with the proviso that the Council of Academic Advisors submits a preliminary report to CAPP through SEC by January 2011. The report should contain the following information

a. Comparative data on the number of academic actions implemented during the 2008-09 and the 2009-10 Academic Years. (Two academic actions per year vs one.)

b. In comparison and using the same data (2008-09 and 09-10) how has the academic actions helped students re-gain good academic standing or otherwise?
