In view of the creation of the University Ad Hoc Committee to Study Semesters, the committee generally discussed potential advantages and disadvantages of semester and quarter calendar systems, including what may be best for our students, student retention, possible semester calendar dates, transition impacts on students and faculty, experiences of other institutions converting to semesters, and a host of other issues. However, the committee had no intention of deliberating on this issue or making a recommendation.

The committee scheduled its last 1996-97 UUCAPC meeting for Friday May 16, 1997 at 1:30 p.m. in 032 Rike Hall.
