Millersville University, Faculty Senate

TO: FACULTY SENATE
FROM: ACADEMIC POLICIES COMMITTEE
DATE: 19 June 1997
RE: ADDITIONAL REVISION OF GOVERNANCE MANUAL IN LIGHT OF NEW PLUS/MINUS SYSTEM

The Academic Policies Committee has one additional =/- grade revision to the GM which was delayed at committee level and not included with the original package of motions (please see 22 April 1997 memo to Faculty Senate from APC, "Revision of Governance Manual due to Implementation of Plus/Minus Grading System").

MOTION #1
To replace this provision which appears on p. 93-94 of the Governance Manual:

With the following provision (changes are bolded):

Rationale:
    #1. The replacing of the "D" with a "D-" in the opening sentence makes the statement consistent with other minima changes previously proposed for the GM.
    #2. Many departments across campus are debating different minimum standards (C vs. C- vs. D+, etc.) with regard to department major competency requirements. Therefore APC concluded it was necessary to issue more general wording rather than a specific grade designation.
